Lech Aleksander Kaczyński was a Polish lawyer and politician who served as the President of Poland from 2005 until 2010 and as Mayor of Warsaw from 2002 until 22 December 2005.
(NY Times – April 10, 2010) – “A plane carrying the Polish president and dozens of the country’s top political and military leaders to the site of a Soviet massacre of Polish officers in World War II crashed in western Russia on Saturday, killing everyone on board.”
“The crash came as a stunning blow to Poland, wiping out a large portion of the country’s leadership in one fiery explosion. (…) Russian emergency officials said 97 people were killed. They included Poland’s deputy foreign minister and a dozen members of Parliament, the chiefs of the army and the navy, and the president of the national bank.”
A young local man and his grandfather were passing by fairly close to the place where the plane crashed. He arrived at the crash site just minutes after the event, and started recording the aftermath with his mobile phone. In seconds, a special ops team appeared out of nowhere and begun shooting the survivors of the plane crash.
The motives are numerous, but some of the most important are the following:
1. Poland discovered 1.36 trillion cubic meters of shale gas in its underground, just five days before the crash. This was enough to make Poland independent from Russian gas for 100-200 years. Soon after Kaczyński’s assassination, Russia signed with the newly formed Polish government a long-term gas supply agreement.
2. Poland supported the Georgians in the 2008 war with Russia.
3. Most importantly, Poland is openly pro-USA and anti-Russia, especially since they have managed to overcome communism in 1989-1990. USA was planning to place a missile defense complex in Poland (a.k.a. missile shield), to protect itself from missiles launched from Iran and Russia. The plan was dropped in 2009 by the Obama administration.
