Pieces of Polish Tu154M wreckage stored in Smolensk disappear one by one like the truth about Katyn
Published: June 6, 2018
As reported by newsweb.pl, residents of the city of Smolensk raised alarm that the wreckage of the Polish Air Force One stored in their city virtually disappeared. While the Polish diplomats have been trying for years to secure the return of the wreckage of Polish Tu-154M that was brought down in Smolensk, Russia, on April 10, 2010, the residents of Smolensk sound alarm that pieces of the wreckage have been disposed of or stolen one by one and by now nothing is left of the Polish Air Force One that crashed in Smolensk and killed everybody on board, including the President of Poland Lech Kaczynski.
According to eyewitness accounts, most pieces of debris have been stolen for scrap long time ago. What’s more, soon after the crash pieces of the Polish Tupolev were on sale at various Russian bazars all over the country. This trade phenomenon was reported soon after the crash, when Polish journalists purchased such pieces on the black market in Russia.
By 2013 Smolensk residents sounded an alarm that only 1/3 of Tupolev was left in the storage hangar. “You will never find out what happened with the airplane because there is hardly any evidence left by now,” said a resident of Smolensk.
Recently, new rumors emerged. Apparently, the FSB that is in charge of securing the wreckage dutifully removes larger pieces of the Polish Tupolev from the storage location. Earlier on, these pieces were washed with power washer, some were even painted. Such actions certainly would make the job of Polish investigators more difficult when and if at all they will ever be allowed to examine the wreckage.
The Russian people are also dumbfounded why the Kremlin plays such a brutal game with Poland. The most probable explanation is that there is nothing there in the storage area to return to Poland. The Russians cannot acknowledge this situation publically because it would cause an international scandal. So they have to lie and delay and muddy their response to the Polish requests for the return of the wreckage.
This strategy to make sure that the wreckage of the Polish Tu-154M disappears was reported soon after the crash. On June 19, 2010, the Polish paper Super Express reported that “the Russian investigators already completed their analysis of the wreckage of the airplane hence, they don’t need this wreckage any more. Despite the fact that the Polish investigators plead with them for the return of the wreckage to Poland the Russians ignore these requests. Instead they intend to use it for scrap.”

Why did they all fly on the same plane?
Synopsis: January 12, 2013, Toronto, Canada. The wife of the late Deputy-Minister of Culture Tomasz Merta: "What I am about to tell you now, are suspicions - and not even my own - but, rather the [suspicions of the] individuals in the inner-circles of the [Polish] military... I heard a statement that was made - but, I am not taking any responsibility for how credible, or not credible it is. [I heard that] had the generals and journalists' not been re-assigned to different aircraft, it wouldn't have been the Tupolev [Tu-154M], but rather the Casa [transport aircraft] that would have been taken out.
Because the Generals were no longer onboard the Casa, there was no reason for it to get airborne. And for this reason it was the Yak[-40] that flew off to Smolensk. This Casa [transport aircraft] was never examined in any way. It was not subject to any examination. Aside from a single note in the deposition given to the military, no one was interested why this aircraft didn't fly [to Smolensk]. Perhaps, this is someones crazy phantasy, but perhaps it isn't.
Some [Polish] military personnel had suggested, that it [the Casa] had to stay behind at the Okecie military [tarmack], so that the explosives could be removed from it - because they were no longer needed [...] I am only repeating what I was told."
"Disarming" Explosives ...
It is worth for us to retrace the entire process of "disarming" the case of explosive substances at the crash site. It all started with the publication of Cezary Gmyz in "Rzeczpospolita" on October 30, 2012, and information that the detectors, which were used by experts in Smolensk (in late September and October) showed traces of TNT and nitroglycerine.
As it turned out, the journalist was also reporting about the indication of Hexogen. The storm broke. The prosecution denied the publication, and ultimately, the editor-in-chief of "Rzeczpospolita," Cezary Gmyz and two other journalists lost their jobs. The entire editorial staff of one of Poland’s most popular weeklies, "Uważam Rze", was also silenced.
