May they rest in peace

Polish government’s plane carrying the president Lech Kaczyński and his wife, deputy speaker of Polish parliament Jerzy Szmajdziński, some other country officials crashed today in the vicinity of army airport in Smolensk, Russia. Reuters agency reports 87 people died in the crash.

My country goes into mourning after the biggest tragedy it witnessed in my lifetime. Poland lost in a split second many representatives of its ruling elite – ministers, deputies, governor of central bank are among the fatalities. The number of people who died in one place passes all beliefs.

First questions concerning breaking the rule that many VIPs cannot fly the same plane are being asked. First unofficial messages say the early presidential elections will be held on 20 June 2010.

I am here symbolically paying my respects to all Polish public figures who departed today.

BBC published an obituary of Polish president.

Wieczny odpoczynek racz im dać Panie…
