WARSAW, March 27. /TASS/. Polish prosecutors investigating the 2010 plane crash, which killed Polish president Lech Kaczynski, his wife and 94 other passengers in western Russia, accused two Russian air traffic controllers of complicity in the tragedy, Polish military prosecutor, Ireneusz Szelag, said on Friday.

The prosecutor said that an order was issued on March 24 "to press criminal charges against two Russian nationals, who were part of the air traffic control group."

"Experts estimated work of air traffic controllers," Szelag said. "One of them is accused of creating a situation of immediate danger in the air. The other is accused of unintentional actions leading to the catastrophe."

He said the process to officially charge the two Russians was underway and an issue of their possible interrogation was considered as well. Szelag added that the prosecutor’s office will not be revealing the details of this process.

The prosecutor also said that the investigation into the tragic incident near the Russian city of Smolensk had been extended until October 10.
