    Polish president dead in plane crash.

    Polish President Lech Kaczynski 'in plane crash'

    A plane carrying Polish President Lech Kaczynski has crashed near a Russian airport, officials say.

    Russian media reported that 87 people were killed in the crash near Smolensk, and a regional governor was quoted as saying there were no survivors.

    Polish officials said Mr Kaczynski was on board along with his wife Maria and several senior government figures.

    They were in Russia to mark the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre, when the Soviets killed thousands of Poles.

    Plane 'hit trees'

    The Russian emergencies ministry told Itar-Tass news agency the plane crashed at 1056 Moscow time (0656 GMT).

    Ministry spokeswoman Irina Andrianova said it had been flying from Moscow to Smolensk, but had no details on the identities of those killed.

    Smolensk regional governor Sergei Antufiev told Russian TV that no-one had survived.

    "As it was preparing for landing, the Polish president's aircraft did not make it to the landing strip," he said.

    "According to preliminary reports, it got caught up in the tops of trees, fell to the ground and broke up into pieces. There are no survivors in that crash.

    "We are clarifying how many people there were in the [Polish] delegation. According to preliminary reports, 85 members of the delegation and the crew."

    The BBC's Adam Easton in Warsaw says the president was flying in a Tupolev 154, a plane that was designed in the 1960s and capable of carrying more than 100 passengers.

    The Polish Foreign Ministry said the president and his wife were aboard the plane.



    Central bank governor Slawomir Skrzypek was also said to have been on board.

    Mr Kaczynski has been a controversial figure in Polish politics, advocating a right-wing Catholic agenda.

    He has opposed rapid free-market reforms and favoured retaining social welfare programmes.
    Just one thing, choly crap.

    It is sad, and it will without a doubt give some tensions between Poland and Russia. There are already conspiracy theories, that the Russians guided the plane wrong, etc.

    I heard that a new president has to be elected within 60 days, but I'm not sure if that is true.

    I am hoping for a more liberal, less catholic and more intelligent new president. I don't say it's good that he died, but this has a positive effect on the country.

    Rumor has it that all candidates for the actual president election in october have died as well, except for one. Epic win for him. D:

    The Russians indeed have interest in the president being dead. He was one of the reasons bush was able to push plans for the rocket-shield forward. He's really been pro-American, something the Russians don't like to have directly next to them.

    But going so far and saying this may have been an actual murder is stupid. The risk of being revealed is way too high, the consequences are dreadful.

    Yep, but you forget one thing. The plane "crashed" on Russian soil. That means that they are running the "investigation" which will probably lead to an enemy of Russia being framed for it.

    I dont know what to belive anymore, russia did attack Georgia some time ago right? What would stop them from wiping out a possible political enemy? but why would they do so at these days? :S

    Well I hope Poland can move on from this fast.
