VIDEO OF PURPORTED AFTERMATH OF SCENE APPEARS; VIDEOGRAPHER REPORTED MURDERED IN HOSPITAL
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 30, 2010) — A report in an Azerbaijani online newspaper is vouching for the authenticity of a video identified as the immediate aftermath of the Polish airline crash on April 10 which killed 96 Polish government, banking and other officials, including President Lech Kaczynski and his wife.
The article states that the Polish Military Prosecutor’s Office has affirmed that “The video made several minutes after the crash of Polish president’s plane in Russia is true.”
Kaczynski had been an outspoken critic of Russia and had warned against what he perceived as its expansionist intent into formerly eastern-bloc countries. He had also opposed the purchase of gas from Russia, which the current prime minister, Donald Tusk, apparently favors. Investigative journalist Jane Burgermeister provides a video report here.
An article dated today refers to Tusk as “Russia-friendly.”
After the crash, one writer referred to Kaczynski as the U.S.’s “strongest European ally.”
The Azerbaijani news service began reporting on a 24-hour/day basis on January 25, 2010 and boasts publication in five languages. It states that “The agency was accredited at the Council of Europe, State Department and Russian foreign ministry. It is working with many analytical centers of the world, including Stratfor Global Intelligence Company.” A news report in French from the APA website today discusses the Armenian genocide of 1918.
The video of the Polish air crash has been widely disseminated on the internet and can be viewed here.
A website which predicts “the resurrection of the USSR” is reporting that the videographer who had allegedly filmed and uploaded the video to the internet was stabbed in Kiev, Ukraine five days afterward. The same report states that he was hospitalized but removed from life support equipment and murdered while in the hospital.
The site links to what is identified as the story in Polish:
