“In the race for the most ridiculous and stupid statements suddenly appeared a new leader,” said TFR spokesman Vladimir Markin in his Twitter. Thus he commented on made the head of the defense Ministry of Poland Anthony Mazarevica a statement that the plane crash with President Lech Kaczynski was a terrorist attack.
Defense Minister of Poland made a statement about the disaster on the eve of 2010 during a speech at the conference dedicated to solving the problems of armed conflict and terrorism. He called the plane crash a terrorist attack and stressed that it was aimed at depriving Poland of people who “led the country to independence”. “After Smolensk [crash], we can say that we were <…> the first great victim of terrorism in modern conflict that is played out right before our eyes,” he added.
Earlier the words of Mazarevica commented in the state Duma. The Chairman of the state Duma Committee for security and combating corruption Irina Yarovaya called the statement “delusional” and compared it to “psychological terrorism.”
“Whom the Minister of defence of Poland announced the suicide pilots and the President of Poland, who independently made decisions and acted wrongly tragic? But to rate it as terrorism, which means to be completely inadequate,” he said. “It is strange, as the Minister of defence can protect the security of citizens, if he makes lesaulnier, taking upon himself the right to unleash an information war that destroys the foundations of trust and security”, — said Yarovaya, expressing the hope that the Polish people “will accept the statement of Anthony Mazarevica as an unfortunate misunderstanding”.
The accident occurred in April 2010. It killed 96 people, including President Kaczynski, his wife, representatives of the high command and the political parties of Poland. According to the report of Interstate aviation Committee, the cause of the crash of the presidential Tu-154 became the incorrect actions of the crew.
