Report on Polish president's fatal crash rejected by twin

A Russian report blaming Poland's air force chief for last year's fatal air crash, which killed Polish president Lech Kaczynski and 95 others in Russia, was rejected by the president's twin brother Wednesday as a "taunt against Poland."

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a former prime minister and current head of the party Law and Justice, said the report dealt with "speculation" for which there was no proof and that the report was "completely one- sided."

Kaczynski further faulted Prime Minister Donald Tusk for allowing Russia to take the lead in the investigation and not allowing the European Union to play a greater role in the inquest, DPA reported.

He suggested, in turn, that the accident might have been caused by mistakes made by Russian air controllers.
