Polish President Lech Kaczynski-Top Polish Leaders Die in Plane Crash Over Russia

One of America’s greatest friends since the fall of communism ,Poland, has lost its President Lech Kaczynski and several of Poland’s top leaders and officials in a plane crash over Russia..

This is an incredible tragedy and our prayers and love are going up to the Father for the people of Poland and that the Lord’s will be done in Poland as a result of this tragedy.

Russian and Polish officials said there were no survivors on the Soviet-era Tupolev, which was taking the president, his wife and staff to events marking the 70th anniversary of the massacre of thousands of Polish officers by Soviet secret police.

"Polish-Russian relations had been improving of late after being poisoned for decades over the Katyn massacre.

Russia never has formally apologized for the murders of some 22,000 Polish officers, but Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's decision to attend a memorial ceremony earlier this week in the forest near Katyn was seen as a gesture of goodwill toward reconciliation. Rossiya-24 showed hundreds of people around the Katyn monument, many holding Polish flags, some weeping." More at the Jerusalem Post
How ironic a plane crash killing all of Poland's top officials aboard over Russia who were enroute to attend the 70th anniversary of a massacre of thousands of Poles by the Russian secret police.
