The parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe urges Russia to transfer to Poland the wreckage of the Tu-154M that crashed with the Polish governmental delegation on Board on April 10, 2010.
“Russia should return the wreckage to Poland, because the technical investigation of aviation security had been completed. The refusal of the Russian authorities to do so is a abuse of rights, gives rise to speculation that Russia has something to hide,” — said in adopted on Friday at the autumn session of the PACE resolution, reports “UKRINFORM”.
We will remind, on April 10, 2010 at a military airfield “Severny” in Smolensk, the plane crashed Tu-154, on which the Polish state delegation was dedicated on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Katyn tragedy. In the crash killed all 96 people aboard the presidential couple Lech and Maria Kaczynski, as well as representatives of the political, military, religious elite of the Polish community activists.
In 2016 Poland resumed its investigation of the crash near Smolensk, in which, among other things, the two years were exhumed the bodies of all the victims. Poland for many years asks Russia to give the wreckage of the broken plane, but Russia refuses to do so, citing the Russian investigation of the crash.
