MOSCOW, March 14. /TASS/. The Polish defense minister’s statement that the crash of former President Lech Kaczynski’s plane near Russia’s Smolensk was a terrorist attack are groundless and have nothing to do with reality, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"There is plenty of information in the public domain with references to our officials, to the officials that conducted the investigation, that investigated the circumstances of this air crash," Peskov said. "Based on all of this, such statements can be called groundless, not objective and having nothing in common with real circumstances of the tragedy," he added.
Peskov noted that the Polish defense minister’s accusations are "a rather sweeping statement that has no grounds." "We all, including in the public domain, had an opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the circumstances of this terrible tragedy," the Kremlin spokesman noted.
Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz said earlier: "After (the) Smolensk (plane crash), we can say that we were ... the first great victim of terrorism in the modern conflict, that's playing out right before our eyes.".
