Polish prez Lech Kaczynski dies in plane crash

A terrible tragedy, regardless of politics.

Polish president killed in plane crash - CNN.com

Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed early Saturday along with his wife, several top military officials, and the head of the national bank when their plane crashed at a western Russian airport, officials said.

The president, 60, had been traveling with the Polish delegation to Russia for the 70th anniversary of the massacre of Polish prisoners of war in the village of Katyn. Some 20,000 Polish officers were executed there during World War II.

Yeah, seriously terrible news. A real tragedy. I noted this before in the superthread.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Kacynski. I heard that the weather conditions weren't very ideal and that the Polish pilot was asked to land in Minsk, but refused.

Very unfortunate. I never agreed with his politics, but still it's a blow for the country and a sad incident altogether.

History loves irony. My prayers to the deceased and their families.

the place is in the middle of nowhere, with no "real" airport and not that many alternative ways of traveling there.
many more "of the top brass" traveled there by train or car the day before, but that's also not easy since they had to travel trough Belarus where with Lukashenko as the prezident there's alot of diplomatic tension between our countries...

I am sorry for the tragic loss of life your country is suffering. I hope everything works out the best it can from this point on.

Maybe it was an accident, but it strikes me as politically convenient for certain parties (and I don't mean Polish parties).

Those with interest in conspiracy theories should know that also chiefs of Polish navy, air forces, Warsaw army, special forces died in crash. Those who play forex or bond markets could be interested to know that Head of Central Bank died too.


Hopefully this will not increase the chances of a shooting war within Europe.
