Shocking findings have emerged from exhumations of the Smolensk victims’ bodies. The investigators stated that “the bodies were desecrated."
Will new charges follow?
The website wPolityce.pl reported on the opinion of Polish prosecutors who participated in the latest exhumations of the Smolensk victims’ bodies. In the opinion of the prosecutors who assisted in the exhumations, the bodies were not only intermixed, but also desecrated, which proves not so much the mess and haste of the Russians, but simply their bad intentions.
Mistakes, shocking negligence, and plain depravity – this is the picture painted of the Russians who had been placing the bodies of the Smolensk victims in the caskets. This picture emerges from the discussions with Polish prosecutors who participated in the exhumations.
A women’s hand with a ring on her finger was found in a coffin bearing the name of a man, as if it had been thrown in. “It's a deliberate desecration, not a mistake,” said one of the investigators.
Other prosecutors note that the work of the Russians, who placed the bodies in caskets, was completely unsupervised.
They did whatever they wanted and how they wanted. A plastic cup sewn into a body of a victim or a cigarette butt found the body of President Kaczorowski are the key examples of the total lack of respect and supervision. “On paper everything was in order, but in reality not,” said one of the interviewees who admits that Russian negligence or even deliberate actions were intended to violate the dignity the Smolensk victims, such actions shocked the Polish experts and investigators.
“None of us realized that it was that bad. We were in total shock,” he admits.
The National Prosecutor's Office confirmed that, as a result of the current exhumations, parts of other people's bodies have been found in 5 caskets. By the end of 2017 there will be 40 more exhumations carried out.
We have no doubt that more of these shocking mistakes will be found. We realize that there are still many more scandals awaiting us. Charges should be brought against those who have committed these shocking acts,” said one of the prosecutors.
The treatment of the bodies of the victims of the Smolensk catastrophe was reported by the weekly “wSieci.” For example in one of the caskets ... three hands were found. According to "Super Express", this was the macabre finding in the exhumation of Natalia Januszko, the stewardess in the Polish Air Force One.
The Prosecution Office from the beginning reported that the exhumation of the bodies of the victims was essential to correct earlier mistakes. The issues include possible misplacement of the bodies of victims and anomalies in descriptions of injuries found in Russian documentation. On the prosecutor’s recommendation, four exhumations were carried out in March 2017. Investigators examined the bodies of Wojciech Seweryn, Natalia Januszko, Andrzeja Przewoźnik and Aleksandra Natalia-Świat. The exhumation work was undertaken by a team of investigators led by the Deputy Prosecutor General Marek Pasionka.
In addition to forensic doctors from Polish institutions, an international team of world class experts participated in the exhumations and subsequent autopsies. The team included Prof. Silke Grabherr, head of the Institute of Legal Medicine in Geneva (world authority in the field of imaging autopsies, having performed the autopsy on Jaser Arafat), prof. Guy Rutty from the University of Leicester (having participated in the study of victims of Boeing 777 Malaysia Airlines, shot down over Ukraine), and prof. Duarte Nuno Viera, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine from the Coimbra University and UN expert.
The initial autopsies have produced, unfortunately once again, horrible news about the treatment of the Polish victims by the Russians.
With the body of one male victim, a leg of a woman with a name tag ... of a man was found. In one casket three hands were found, in another casket two left hands were found. “Even a lay person would spot this,” reported the weekly „wSieci.”
According to Super Express, the macabre discovery of three hands in one caskets concerns the body of Natalia Januszko, stewardess of the 36th Special Aviation Regiment. The Prosecutor's Office did not confirm or comment on this case.
“In the exhumations we look for, amongst other things, potential swapping of the bodies of April 10, 2010 crash victims and inconsistencies in the description of the injuries found in the Russian documentation,” added the spokesman for the National Prosecutor's Office, Ewa Bialik.

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.
