(Reuters) - Polish investigators found traces of explosives on the wreckage of the government jet that crashed in Russia two years ago, killing Poland's president and 95 others, daily Rzeczpospolita reported on Tuesday.Without citing sources, the newspaper said prosecutors and explosive experts who examined the remains of the plane in Russia found signs of TNT and nitroglycerin on the wings and in the cabin, including on 30 seats.Traces of explosives were also found in the area where the Tu-154 crashed during its approach to a small airport near the Russian city of Smolensk on April 10, 2010, the daily reported.
Last month, Polish investigators travelled to Smolensk to examine the wreckage of the plane.
According to Rzeczpospolita, they found traces of TNT and nitroglycerine on 30 seats and in the middle section of the plane. "There was so much of the chemicals that one of the devices went off the scale," the newspaper said in an article published in Monday.
In response, Polish opposition leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the twin brother of Lech, called for Mr Tusk to resign.
However, Col Szelag told a news conference later on Tuesday: "It is not true that investigators found traces of TNT or nitroglycerine.
"Evidence and opinions collected so far have in no way provided support to the belief that the crash was a result of actions by third parties, that is to say an assassination."
He also pointed out that equipment used to detect TNT could react in a similar way to soil, perfume or everyday objects.
Moscow and Warsaw came under criticism over their handling of the Smolensk investigation after Polish prosecutors admitted last month that families of two of the victims had received and buried the wrong remains.
The military said on Tuesday that two more bodies had been misidentified.Meanwhile, SkyNews also reports the following:
The latest development comes shortly after a key witness in the inquiry was found hanged in the basement of his house in the outskirts of Warsaw. A post mortem is due to be held this week.
Remigiusz Mus, 42, was apparently due to tell investigators he heard two loud bangs just before the president's plane went down.While the "official story" (drawn from an investigation led by Vladimir Putin) that the crash was an accident caused by pilot error is likely to remain the same even in light of the newest evidence, the most profound piece of evidence raised by this blogger right after the April 2010 crash has still not been considered. Immediately after the crash, a local farmer and his son wandered over to the crash site and a cell phone video was captured of Russian soldiers shooting dead remaining survivors:
Why does this video evidence remain ignored by authorities and reporters investigating the crash some two-and-a-half years later?
What seems telltale is that this effective assassination of Poland's President and high command occurred as these dignitaries were on their way to Smolensk, Russia to commemorate that 70th anniversary of the 1940 Katyn Forest massacre of Polish officers and officials by Russian forces in World War Two. Just as Russia blocked the truth from being revealed about the 1940 tragedy, this similar, contemporary crime of high mass murder is likewise being successfully covered up by Moscow.
Until this world finds the courage to hold Russia's criminal ruling elite accountable for their ongoing crimes against humanity, there will be no hope.
NOTE: Kudos to Arutz Sheva Israel National News that made the connection to the video in reporting today's news.
