Medvedev arrived in Krakow – By Plane

While many Western, especially European leaders didn’t want to take the risk of flying to Krakow for the funeral of deceased President Kaczynski, Russian president Medvedev seems to have been unimpressed and had his plane fly to Krakow:

МОСКВА, 18 апр – РИА Новости. Президент РФ Дмитрий Медведев вылетел из Москвы в Краков, чтобы принять участие в траурной церемонии похорон президента Польши Леха Качиньского, погибшего 10 апреля в авиакатастрофе под Смоленском, сообщила пресс-секретарь президента РФ Наталья Тимакова.

Moscow, April 18 – RIA Novosti. President of the Russian Federation, Dimitri Medvedev flew from Moscow to Krakow to participate in the funeral ceremony for the Polish president Lech Kaczynski, who died April 10 in an air crash near Smolensk, said the Russian presidents press secretary in a communique.

Russian technology is very resilient in unfavourable circumstances. He is being flown around in an Ilyushin Il-96 300 in case your interested, but not the standard one, of course. It was commissioned under Putin with a quite luxurious interior, pictures are here.
