The day after the plane went down with most of the Polish government plummeting to there death.
I find this interesting and odd.
Had Kaczynski's attendance at the Katyn commemoration been an officially recognized visit?
Kaczynski was not invited to Putin’s event and there was no promise of a warm welcome at the Smolensk airfield yesterday. He was determined to attend the commemoration, though — not, as he put it, “to inflame relations with Russia”, but to support 400 relatives of the victims who were expected to be there. “I hope I get a visa,” he had joked.
The reference to the Putin event was one that was held earlier in the week.
There was no promise of a 'warm welcome at Smolensk airfield'
But, Kaczynski was determined to attend, as he was quoted to say not to “to inflame relations with Russia” but to support relatives of victims.
"I hope I get a visa"
I don't know what to make of this bit of news, interesting, perplexing.....
