Polish President Andrzej Duda wrote a letter to the participants of the 4th Smolensk Conference that took place on November 14, 2015 in Warsaw, Poland. The letter is presented below.
"Ladies and Gentlemen,
I send my best regards to all of you gathered at the 4th Smolensk Conference. Let me quote our great poet Cyprian Kamil Norwid, whose motto beautifully conveys the purpose and significance of these deliberations: 'We don’t have to bow to the circumstances and leave the truths at the doorsteps."
The President continued:
"The reports of [the Russian] MAK and Miller Commissions are simply hypotheses that fail in confrontation with scientific analysis of the available photographic and video evidence. Therefore, it must be accepted that endeavors to explain the circumstances and causes of the Smolensk crash have not been successful thus far. Therefore, the investigation is not complete."
