Russian air traffic controllers from the Smolensk airport, where the plane of the Polish President Lech Kaczynski crashed, mislead the Polish pilots with the position of the airplane, the Polish committee investigating the crush announced on Thursday, AFP reads. Several minutes before landing, when the Polish airplane was actually a little higher than 130 meters and deviated by 80 meters from the landing axe, Russian air traffic controllers said that the position of the plane was correct, instead of urging pilots to correct the position, a member of the commission declared to journalists.  

Russian air traffic controllers were at their wits end, after the barely good landing of a first Polish airplane. It is hard to believe that this information was not included in the MAK report, presented six days ago by Moscow, the deputy head of the committee declared.  

According to the data presented by the Russians, Polish officials present in the plane pressured pilots to land despite the Russian warnings not to and the unfavorable weather conditions. 

On April 10, 2010 the Presidential Tupolev TU 154 airplane, with 96 people on board including Polish president Lech Kaczynski, his wife and many high Polish officials crashed while trying to land on the Smolensk airport, West Russia. There was no survivor.
