From RIA Novosti: There were no NATO sensitive data or devices on board the Polish president’s plane that crashed in April near west Russia’s Smolensk, a top Polish military counterintelligence official has said.

A Soviet-made Tu-154 aircraft crashed on April 10 when it attempted to land in thick fog, killing all 96 people on board, including President Kaczynski and other top state officials.

"There was a satellite phone on board the Tu-154 plane, but there were no ‘secret codes,’ devices or cryptographic materials," said Col. Colonel Krzysztof Dusza, head of Poland’s Military Counterintelligence Service (SKW).

"The above-mentioned president’s phone was a simple satellite phone," he told reporters on Saturday.  (photo: Reuters)
