Trump promised to help Poland with the return of the wreckage of Tu-154 from Russia

Even before winning the United States Presidential Elections, President-elect Donald Trump promised to raise the issue of the return of the wreckage of the Tu-154 during negotiations with Russia.

"I heard about the case and that the Russians do not want to return the fragments. I will try to help Poland in this regard," the politician said after the Congress of Polish Americans in September.

TVP Polonia reports that Trump also spoke about the "great respect to the Polish people" and that he has many friends among the natives of this country. Furthermore, he assured that the United States would "work very closely with NATO and defend Poland in the framework of the alliance."

Meanwhile, as reported by Radio ZET, an audit of the Polish Government Protection Bureau revealed that during the preparation of the visit of Lech Kaczyński in Katyn in 2010, the department had grossly violated safety measures. In particular, it did not carry out the necessary coordination of actions. The security commander had not been assigned and there was no control over the preparation of the visit, the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration, Jarosław Zieliński explained.

The case of neglect in the preparations for the President's visit to Katyn will be investigated by the Prosecutor's Office.

In 2015 it was reported that Russia would not give Poland the wreckage of the presidential plane that crashed in 2010 near Smolensk. Ninety-six people were killed in that plane crash on April 10, 2010, including Polish President Lech Kaczyński.
