Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And you think Arthur Gilroy sees Russia as a normal country?

I said Arthur Gilroy is a nut. If America, with its stolen elections, unaccountable war criminals, and brazen violation of international law is a normal country, then so is Russia.

And now his brother will run for President in a special election to be held within 10 weeks. What are the odds that he will use this in his campaign?

How does that relate to the point under discussion, whether it made sense for the Russians to assassinate Kaczynski? Surely the Russians would have been able to figure out that there was a risk of Kaczynski's brother getting a popularity bounce if Kaczynski got killed. Or are you suggesting that the Russians were expecting both twins to be on the plane, and that the surviving brother's deciding at the last moment not to get on the plane because their mother was ill will turn out to be the chance event that caused the Russian plot to backfire?

Oh, I never suggested that the Russians are to blame for the crash.
