They are to examine the debris of the Tu-154M aircraft that is located at the Smolensk airport. Their work will take place under supervision of Russian specialists.

Earlier this month, Russian Investigative Committee agreed to yet another examination of the plane wreckage by Polish prosecutors.

On April 10, 2010, the Polish presidential Tu-154M plane crashed near Smolensk, western Russia. All 96 passengers and members of the crew, including the then president Lech Kaczyński and the First Lady Maria Kaczyńska, were killed.

Ever since the crash, the Polish side has been criticizing Russia for obstructing the investigation and for refusing to return the wreckage, including the plane’s black boxes.
