Today at about 9 am a Polish governmental plane crashed near Smoleńsk, in the territory of Russia. On the board were present many of the most important persons in the country: Polish President Lech Kaczyński with his wife, many ministers and Members of Parliament as well as military commanders, leaders of different denominations and others. None of 88 passengers survived the catastrophe. They all travelled to take part in a celebration commemorating the victims of 194o' Katyn massacre, where thousands of Polish prisoners of war, mainly military officers, intellectuals and other public servants were mass murdered by the Soviet NKVD.

Today is a day of great sorrow for all the Polish nation, regardless of our political views or affiliations. It's truly an unimaginable loss for our country.

All those who died today in their fatherland's service, requiestat in pace.
