Polish politicians have held rival observances for former President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others killed two years ago in a plane crash in Russia.

President Bronislaw Komorowski laid flowers to the victims at the Presidential Palace.

Kaczynski's twin brother and opposition party leader, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, laid a wreath at a different site at the palace.

The rival observances come as opposition supporters say the crash was not an accident and put forth assassination theories.

Meanwhile, Georgia unveiled a bust to commemorate Lech Kaczynski, a firm supporter of Tbilisi in its 2008 war with Russia.

Kaczynski's plane crashed on April 10, 2010, in Smolensk as he led a delegation to Russia to honor 22,000 Polish officers murdered by Josef Stalin's secret police at the start of World War II in the Katyn forest.

"A(ris)F(e)P(e)" press and "A(ris)P(e)" press lying!
Stalin had no "secret police", even Dacha officer of guard
Was replaced, when after 1947 Spring house arrest of Stalin,
He still had a simpaty for the man. Russians always crushed
Poles each generation after partition - walk Sibirian ice roads.

Stalin asked on "Katyn case" Kalinin, Molotov and Kaganovich
Advise on future Russians-Poles relation, Geneva precident
And use of more advanced Poles than Russians in industry.
They all wrote "rasstrelyat" and sent it directly to President.
They told later Stalin: "You are not Russia, just advisory."

Now you accusing Georgia and Poland, victims of Russia,
for being "supporter" of each other and pinning one of many
crimes of Russia on Stalin?

It isn't poetry, just logical abreviation.
By the way, it crossed my mind that rhyme was too close.
I had no time for rhyming, but your telepaths in apartment
building picked the thought and you put it on Internet!
Trying to appear more intelligent than a typical
snich-plagiarist from KGB and Gelena?

The monument in Tbilisi pictured above does not resemble the late President Kaczynski at all - he never had this kind of fat face. The monument must have been erected by some Kremlin agents in order to discredit the slain Polish President in the eyes of the Georgian Öffentlichkeit - and this after the evil Russians assassinated him in Smolensk!

The face of Polish president was smaller - he wasn't a tall man.
Would it be better to make his head smaller than normal head?
Devide and rule, Eugenio - for Austria and Russian empires?
The real Austrians would plant a chicken egg or a funkel...
But you are right, - remnants of Russian occupiers
still smell all over CIS and Eastern Europe too...

Building head statues of some people is stupid thing. An iron head. Why ? İron heads made by İron hands ! from the Georgian dictatorship. Georgians, give some bread and potatoes to your hungry people, do not make stupid things, do not let waste your money by Saakashwili and do not give a cm of your land to build an iron head statue. Who are Polish people ? Are they your neighbours ?
