«In connection with the information available to the Commission for re-investigation of the accident, and published by the RIA Novosti news Agency interview with Alexey Morozov from the Interstate aviation Committee (IAC), in which he presented, in particular, the course of the crash of Tu-154 near Smolensk 10 April 2010, there is now justifiable doubt about the integrity and validity of the final report of the Commission on aircraft accident investigation civil Aviation, under the leadership of Edmund Klich, and then Jerzy Miller», — stated in the message.

From these considerations, the defense Ministry sends the case to clarify the Prosecutor’s office», — stated in the message.
