Polish Ministry of Defense appealed to the Russian authorities "to immediately" convey previously unknown recording of conversations in the pilots cockpit of the Tu-154 that crashed near Smolensk in 2010. A message was posted on the website of the Polish military department.
"It follows from yesterday's announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin, that Russian authorities have a conversation transcripts between the pilot and passengers, which has never been available to Poland," the Polish ministry department reported.
According to RBC, on December 23, Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed at a press conference, that he has personally read the transcripts of negotiations of Tu-154 pilots and a guard of President Lech Kaczynski, who entered the cabin. According to the head of Russia, the man who entered the pilot's cabin demanded landing but the pilot reported that "it is impossible to land". According to Putin, the security guard answered that he could not report this to his chief. "Come on, do what you want, but land the plane," Putin cited the words of the man who entered the cabin.
The plane, which was carrying 96 people, crashed while landing at the airport of Smolensk in April 2010.
In 2011, the Interstate Aviation Committee issued a final report on the results of the technical investigation, according to which the immediate cause of the accident was the crew decision not to leave to alternate airfield.
