Poland accuses Russian air traffic controllers of deliberately provoking the Smolensk disaster in April 2010, which resulted in the death of then president Lech Kaczynski and several Polish politicians. This is reported by RBK-Ukraina with reference to Newsweek.pl.

The latest developments in the case concern new recordings of conversations of the crashed plane's crew. In particular, evidence will be presented that Russia's authorities and air traffic controllers were intent on making the aircraft fall. "The evidence that has been collected during investigation allowed prosecutors to formulate new accusations against air traffic controllers and a third person, who was staying in the flight control tower", - the Vice Prosecutor General of Poland Marek Pasionek said.

He noted that Poland will turn to Russia with a request for legal assistance for the interrogation of Russian air traffic controllers

At the same time, the prosecutor's office does not disclose the details of the case against the Russian air traffic controllers. According to the investigation, the version of the deliberate provocation of the plane crash is based on the analysis of the records of the negotiations of the air traffic controllers.
