Traces of explosives found on Smolensk Tupolev wreckage
New details emerge in the case of the plane crash, which killed Poland`s president Lech Kachinski in Smolensk in April 2010. Polish experts have found traces of explosives on the wreckage of the presidential plane - local media has reported.
The experts have been investigating the wreckage of Tu-154M for the last month, after Polish prosecutors expressed doubts regarding the Russian specialists` analysis of the pyrotechnics.
Using the most technically advanced equipment, they found some significant traces of explosives both inside the aircraft and on its wings. Devices detected traces of TNT and nitroglycerine also on 30 seats.
Poland’s attorney general and Prime Minister Donald Tusk have already been informed of the discovery, and are now deciding what steps should be taken next. Experts can’t unambiguously determine why traces of TNT and nitroglycerine were found on the wreckage.
