According to Polish media outlets, referring to a report written on the basis of independent international investigations conducted by respected Western experts, the Tu-154M plane of the Polish President Lech Kaczynski was destroyed in Russia's terrorist attack by a conventional missile with a thermobaric warhead.
The report was released as a book (see picture), entitled "The Smolensk crime. The anatomy of the assassination (Zbrodnia Smoleńska. Anatomia zamachu)".
The results of the international investigation team were published in Poland by Antyk Publishing House owned by Marcin Dybowski
The report gives evidence based on, among others items, on the reconstruction of the course of the aircrash, statements of witnesses, analyses of the wreckage of the plane as well the examination of victims' bodies. Experts have done a huge amount of work. They used information from sources in Poland, Russia, the USA and other countries.
According to Gazeta Polska, the experts did not give their names, fearing for their lives. The authors also reported the circumstances leading to the Russia's terrorist attack.
The tender for the repair of the Tupolev airplane in Russia and the repair itself were "contrary to all rules of security and economy", indicate the international experts. They also paid attention to "unusual activity after the disaster", in particular, the lack of rescue and rapid deployment at the crash site of Russian army and security services.
A renowned British historian Viktor Suvorov, former GRU officer, who now lives in London, and Prof. Eugene (Gene) Poteat, the President of the Association of Former US Intelligence Service Officers, wrote an introduction to the report. The report summarizes (p. 730) the findings of the international experts:
"The reason for this air crash was an explosion above the plane of a Russian conventional surface-to-air missile with a thermobaric warhead".
