Over 40 percent of Poles believe Polish-Russian relations have improved in the three months since the Smoleńsk crash, reveals a poll conducted by Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. According to experts, it demonstates increasing trust in Russia since the air disaster that killed the Polish president and dozens of national VIPs. Russia is no longer an “ominous power” but a “nation that has shown much compassion and empathy,” runs the Warsaw’s daily leader. “No one tells us to love the Russians, but there is no reason for us to hate them. Normality would be the perfect state of affairs.”
