The prosecution of two dispatchers from the airport of Smolensk on the airplane crash of Polish President Lech Kaczynski only now, 5 years after the tragedy - politicized initiative not only external, but internal policy of this state, according to Russian experts interviewed on the last working day of the week Last news .
on the last working day of the week, Commissioner of the main military Prosecutor's office of Poland said that two Russian air traffic controllers formulated guilty verdicts of manslaughter, bringing to aviation events.
While the Polish Prosecutor's office agree that the immediate cause of the crash was caused by the actions of the pilots: "the First reason experts have called incorrect crew action to reduce aircraft below the minimum height for a touchdown And a lack of team go-around ".
in the crash of the presidential Tu-154 M near Smolensk on 10 April 2010 cost the lives of 96 people - eight crew members And 88 passengers, And among them the head of Poland Lech Kaczynski, his wife And part of the leadership of the country.
The interstate aviation Committee in 2011 published the final report on the results of technical investigations, according to which the direct cause of the accident is recognized as the decision of the crew to escape to an alternate airfield, And systemic causes of the faults in mission support And training of the crew.
Senior scientific worker of the Institute of Slavic studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences Petr Iskenderov called "purely politicized sentence" the Presentation of the main military Prosecutor's office of Poland charges against two Russian dispatchers. According to the expert, the judicial process is unlikely to have a serious chance of success.
"at present this very well fits into the context of the aggravation of contradictions between Russia And Poland And in the context of the Russian danger, which like stems not only Ukraine, not only the Baltic States, And Poland," said Iskenderov.
He believes that this initiative will not be supported on the Russian side, as Russia to present And participate in any investigation, there is no reason.
"All evaluations, All the opinions were given. This is another attempt to shake up the Polish community at the present time Russia is taking specific steps for the normalization of bilateral Russian-Polish relations. Poland itself is currently trying to initiate reaching agreement on the admission of Polish products on the market of the Russian Federation. In these circumstances, the hardliners, frankly Russophobic forces in the Polish capital, trying to put the blame on the Russian Federation to give impetus to the contradictions between Russia And Poland " - said the expert.
review the Deputy Director of the Center for political technologies Alexei Makarkin, a message about the indictment only now, 5 years later, made the worsening of Russian-Polish relations.
"earlier, the Poles didn't want to spoil the relationship, now they are so spoiled, because It will not aggravate them more. Poles have long said that the blame for what happened - not only pilots, but as long as the relationship was more or less quiet, the Polish side did not want to discuss the most such information. The policy is just that they do It now, " said the head of the Department.
He believes that the statement about the allegations said about the fact that the improvement in relations in the near future is not expected." And even if it would be possible to speak of developing a new relationship, this topic will eventually emerge, " he added Makarkin.
besides, in the opinion of the expert, in Polish society, This event will Now be considered literally differently than in Russian.
"we need to recall that in the near future in Poland's presidential elections, there is the campaign. It is clear that supporters of Jaroslaw Kaczynski will raise such information, accusing the authorities that they are not actively opposed by Russia, the authorities have the possibility to answer: look up against. The competition will not be on the question of how to build relations with Russia on the question of who's more Patriotic. And considering that the vast majority of Polish voters are very wary of the Russian Federation, to put it mildly, in the course of the campaign It has the ability to be used, " he added.
The next presidential elections will be held in Poland on may 10.
