Poland's Military Counterintelligence Service sent a 'top secret' statement on the Smolensk crash to the prosecutor's office

The head of the Military Counterintelligence Service of Poland (SWK), Piotr Bączek, said that new information was sent to the prosecutor's office concerning the crash of the presidential plane near Smolensk, as reported by Radio Poland.

"The statement is top secret and concerns an organized visit to Smolensk. It also contains information on contacts and cooperation between the Military Counterintelligence Service and the Federal Security Service (FSB)." The hearing for the former Polish Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, in regards to this case should take place tomorrow," Bączek said.

He also noted that the most important issues are the activities of the services before the visit, its security, the measures taken, and the actions of the service after April 10, 2010, up until the fall of 2015.

"It can be confidently asserted that the period after April 10th was a turning point in the activity of the Military Counterintelligence Service. If previously the contacts with the FSB were official and diplomatic, then after April 10th they turned into a cooperation that resembles an alliance ... We have a service [FSB], which includes former employees of the NKVD and the KGB and has the support of the entire Russian administration, and on the other hand, the Military Counterintelligence Service, which is trying to expand cooperation with the FSB at any cost," the head of the SWK said.

He acknowledged that a lot of the examinations conducted over the previous years showed that during the organization of the flight to Smolensk there were violations not only by the Government Protection Bureau and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs but also by the Military Counterintelligence Service of Poland.

On April 10, 2010, a Tu-154M plane with Polish President Lech Kaczyński and other Polish high-ranking officials crashed near a military airfield not far from Smolensk. All 96 people on board were killed.

Earlier in April, Poland stated that Kaczyński's plane began to disintegrate while still in the air.
