Trotyl found on wreckage of Polish president Kaczynski's board? Tupolev 154M, Accident occurred April 10, 2010 near Smolensk Air Base, Russia

Poland’s Rzeczpospolita newspaper has published an article titled Trotyl on Tupolev Wrechage, which claimed Polish prosecutors and bomb experts had found traces of trotyl and nitroglycerin on the wreckage of the crashed Tu-154 near Smolensk. 

This allegation was supported by Poland’s Prosecutor General Andrzej Seremet.
The Rzeczpospolita daily said Polish experts used advanced technologies to discover particles of explosives on some thirty passenger seats and the plane’s skin.

Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk has been informed about the findings. Polish Prosecutor’s Office said it was going to make an announcement of its stance in near future.

 A key witness in the case of the Polish Tu-154 airliner crash near Smolensk in 2010 has been found dead at his home near Warsaw. Investigators think the witness had killed himself, according to an official of the district prosecutor’s office, Dariusz Sliepokura.

The flight engineer of a Polish Yak-40 plane, Riemigiusz Mos, was found hanged in a Warsaw suburb late on Sunday.

The body was found in the basement of a residential house where he lived together with his wife, the prosecutor’s office official said in a live interview with Radio Poland. According to him, neither police, nor prosecutors have reasons to suspect that third persons could be involved in the death of the 42-year old Mos.

Mos was in the cockpit of his Yak-40 airliner that landed at Smolensk-Severny airport just one hour before the presidential Tu-154 had attempted to land at the same airport but crashed, killing all 96 people on board, including Polish President Lech Kaczynski. Mos could hear the communication between the Tu-154 crew and the Smolensk air traffic controllers via his onboard radio. Russia’s Investigation Committee is probing into the case of illegal photos of Smolensk plane crash victims being taken and leaked to the web, committee’s spokesman Vladimir Markin told journalists today.

A Polish news agency earlier reported that Poland's Prosecutor General Andrzej Seremet was going to call for Russian Investigation Committee’s chief Alexander Bastrykin to initiate a probe into this case.

Photos depicting bodies of the crash victims appeared in the Russian blogosphere a month ago. Some of them were apparently shot in the morgue. Poland has published results of DNA tests, which proved the bodies of Smolensk crash victims had been “mixed up,” said Zbigniew Rzepa, spokesman of the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office.

The lab tests were conducted by two separate organizations in Bydgoszcz and Vrotslav. Their results clearly showed two bodies had been incorrectly identified.  Six bodies of Smolensk crash victims were exhumed last week over suspicion of having been confused. Identities of three victims were eventually confirmed, while the bodies of Anna Walentynowicz, an activist of the Solidarity movement, and Teresa Walewska-Przyjalkowska had been mixed up, pathologists said.

Russia has granted a Polish request for more documentation concerning the crash of the Polish presidential jet near Smolensk in April 2010. A total of 58 volumes have already been sent to Poland.

The crash killed all 96 people on board, including lawmakers, Generals, Ministers, President Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria Kaczynska.

The President was leading a Polish delegation to commemorative events in Katyn, where Stalin’s secret police massacred captured Polish officers in 1940.
