Donald Tusk, the leader of the European Council testifies before the Polish prosecutor in the case of 2010 plane crash near Smolensk; the EU official is a witness in this case, whom the Polish authorities summoned for an interview.

On Thursday morning, Wiadomosci reported that Tusk arrived in Warsaw and came to the prosecutor’s office, where his supporters chanted his name and unfurled the banner saying ‘Congratulations, President of Europe’.

According to Radio Liberty, the investigation wants to find out why the identification of victims of the plane crash ended up in the hands of Russian experts; this eventually led to numerous mistakes and misconducts.

As is known, on April 10, 2010, a Tupolev Tu-154 aircraft of the Polish Air Force crashed near the city of Smolensk, Russia, killing all 96 people on board. Among the deceased were the-then President of Poland Lech Kaczyński, his wife Maria, many Polish top-rank officials and relatives of the 1940 Katyn massacre victims. The Polish side suspects that Russian flight dispatchers could be behind the catastrophe. Russia, on the other hand, insists that the airliner crashed due to the pilot’s error as the plane was landing amidst thick fog.
