Tragedy at the Smolensk airport

 10.04.2010

We were deeply saddened to learn about death of Mr Lech Kaczyński, President of Poland, the First Lady, Parliamentarians and other members of the Polish delegation to Katyn.
It is our personal tragedy not only because we are Polish citizens but because, as representatives of a non-governmental organization we collaborated many times with the Chancellery of the President of Poland and the Parliament on projects supporting democracy in the world.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who departed, their families, friends and colleagues.
Sincere condolences.

Dorota Mitrus, President of European Institute for Democracy (EID) with the team
