The Polish Ministry of defence urgently requested Russia’s new recording of conversations from the cockpit of the crashed in 2010, of the plane of Polish President Lech Kaczynski. This is stated in the message Agency, published on the website on Saturday, December 24.
“As follows from yesterday’s speech of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, the Russian authorities have at their disposal the text of conversations between the pilot and passengers, which was never represented Poland”, — stated in the Ministry statement.
The office believes that an unknown Polish side of the data lead to the wrong conclusions about what happened.
December 23, Moscow hosted a large press conference of Vladimir Putin. “Listen, we need to stop any speculation on this subject. The tragedy was terrible, but still clear. Why speculate?” — said the President of Russia, answering the question of the Polish correspondent of the crash.
Putin also noted that he personally read the transcript of the conversation in the cockpit of the Polish President, according to which someone from accompanying the head of state asked the pilot to land in Smolensk, despite the objections of the pilot due to severe weather conditions, writes TASS.
Tu-154 of the Polish air force fell near Smolensk on 10 April 2010. The accident killed all 96 people on the plane, including President Lech Kaczynski and his wife. The interstate aviation Committee called the cause of the incident was pilot error. The Polish side did its own investigation and laid part of the blame on Russian air traffic controllers.
