Poland on Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of a plane crash that killed not only its president and other key leaders but also, ultimately, efforts to improve relations with Russia, its historic enemy.
Interim president Bronislaw Komorowski appeared to have held off a last-minute surge from the identical twin brother of the late president, who died in an April plane crash that shocked the country and forced Sunday's early election.
More than two months after Poland's president was killed in a plane crash, Poles voted Sunday to choose his successor. Exit polls showed interim President and Parliament Speaker Bronislaw Komorowski leading former Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, but without the 50 percent needed for outright victory.
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
WARSAW — Poland's all-or-nothing negotiating style helped the post-communist state win concessions over a new treaty to which EU leaders agreed in the wee hours yesterday morning, but at the cost of relations with some key partners in the 27-nation bloc.
"This is the plan which is to reinforce the protection of Europe against the dangers which result from the fact that not all the countries of the contemporary world are responsible — we do not mean Russia here," said President Lech Kaczynski.
"The Russian federation can feel totally safe," he said.
