Some media in Russia and Ukraine are distributing statements from Polish former minister of defence Antoni Macierewicz about alleged explosion on the Polish 🇵🇱 presidential Tu-154 in April 2010.

The only problem is that Macierewicz has been making these statements since 2010 and *never* produced any actual evidence.

He has been promising a "final report" to be published "very soon"... for the last three years.

Dislike for Putin is no reason to automatically jump on any bullshit that implies Putin, and this is precisely the case.

The only thing that makes the case of MH17 and Smolensk crash similar is the propaganda techniques of Kremlin and Macierewicz respectively.

In both cases there's a massive body of internally consistent evidence that supports the official version. Both Kremlin and Macierewicz chose to flood the public with inconsistent conspiracies instead.
