SMOLENSK, Russia - Polish President Lech Kaczynski and some of the country's highest military and civilian leaders died when the presidential plane crashed as it came in for a landing in thick fog in western Russia on Saturday, killing 96, officials said.

Russian and Polish officials said there were no survivors on the Soviet-era Tupolev, which was taking the president, his wife and staff to events marking the 70th anniversary of the massacre of thousands of Polish officers by Soviet secret police.

The Army chief of staff, Gen. Franciszek Gagor, National Bank President Slawomir Skrzypek and Deputy Foreign Minister Andrzej Kremer were also on board, the Polish foreign ministry said.


Oh my god.

I woke up to my dad telling me this. I'm from Ukraine, so they're pretty close to us. I was pretty shocked, and it's not just the President, it's like everyone.
Very, very sad. I wish luck to Poland to sort this all out.

It's very sad and devastating for the country because they had a lot of their government on that plane, not just the president. It does make me wonder why they had all their top officials on one plane, because this is a good reason why sadly.

Yes, quite strange and on their way to Russia too. Imagine Air Force 1 crashing like that.

I don't know if he was a good president but on the off chance he was my condolences to the Poles. What bad luck that country sometimes has.

I didn't even know who the polish president was.

He was the Polish President that was preventing Barry Soetoro from making USA Nuclear Weapon Defense systems inside Poland.

Yes we did and are.
Anyways may he rest in peace, it is quite a tragedy that they all where killed in the plane crash. I anticipate hearing the black box of the plane, if they release it.

I'm a Pole. (god I feel ******ed everytime I write that)
Now some answers.

Didn't know Poland had a president - we do, we have a parliamentary system with government and president.
Well at least you knew Poland was a country.

Was he a good president - no , not really.

There should never had been so many important people on one plane ever.

Conspiracy theories - thatís exactly what been in TV for last...forever since this tragedy occurred.

It's a weird country, trust me.
