Markin wrote in his Twitter that “in the race for the most ridiculous and stupid statements suddenly there was a new leader”, apparently referring to the Minister.
Recall that Macierewicz stated my assumption in the international conference “Contemporary politics: conflicts and terrorism”. He reminded that the fall of the presidential aircraft occurred after Poland had openly raised the issue of the shooting of Polish soldiers by the NKVD in the village of Katyn in 1940.
Macierewicz saw a connection between the two events, noting that Poland “became the first victim of terrorism in modern conflict that is played out before our eyes”. According to the politician, it is a reaction to the demand of Poland will always Katyn and brought death to the elite of the country.
Following this, the Minister reminded that Russia has moved on to other such acts of foreign policy: the war in Georgia, in Ukraine, in Syria. In this number he included the attack on the Malaysian Boeing that crashed in the Donbass.
Position Markin, raskritikovav of Mazarevica were shared by the Deputy of the state Duma Irina Yarovaya. She stated that such “statements are delusional psychological terrorism” and accused the Minister of being inadequate.
Note that in 2011, the international aviation Committee (structure, associated with Russia) came to the conclusion that the reason of accident of the presidential plane was that he had not gone to a reserve airport, MAK also found systemic deficiencies in the training of Polish pilots.
However, in February 2016 at the initiative of Mazarevica the investigation was resumed, and the composition of experts in the Commission expanded.Related posts:
