Late Polish leader`s twin thanks Russians for help

Jaroslaw Kaczynski thanked Russians who helped Poles, lit candles after plane crash killed President Lech Kaczynski.



Warsaw: The twin brother of Poland`s late president hopes Lech Kaczynski’s death in a plane crash in Russia last month will help bring about a historic change in relations between the Slavic nations.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who is now running to succeed his brother as president, issued a video addressed to Russians on Saturday with unusual words of warmth for the powerful neighbour - a country he has long been suspicious of.

He thanked the Russians who helped Poles, lit candles and made other gestures of sympathy after the plane crash killed President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others on April 10.
In the video Jaroslaw Kaczynski says: "Ladies and gentlemen, Russian friends ... We thank you for every tear, for every lit candle lit, for every moving word."
