Poland commemorated on Sunday six years since the plane carrying President Lech Kaczynski and 95 other people including Poland’s top officials crashed in near the Smolensk military airport.

The Polish delegation was en route to memorial ceremonies in Katyn for thousands of Polish army officers killed by the Soviet secret police in 1940.

This was the first anniversary of the Smolensk tragedy under the new government of Law and Justice (PiS), from which the late President Kaczynski hailed. PiS never accepted an inquiry that found the Smolensk crash was an accident.
