Vilnius - Presidents Dalia Grybauskaite of Lithuania and Lech Kaczynski of Poland announced plans Thursday to build a new gas pipeline connecting their countries.
'We have decided to seek that the construction of gas connection between Poland and Lithuania is declared a priority project of the European Union and that this project receives full European support,' Grybauskaite said after a meeting between the two in the Lithuanian capital, Vilnius.
The proposed pipeline would link the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to the Polish gas supply and transmission system.
Grybauskaite said the pipeline would ensure alternative supplies to the region, which currently relies on Russian gas.
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is scheduled to take part in a ceremony on April 7 in Katyn with his Polish counterpart Donald Tusk.
Polish President Lech Kaczynski will mark the anniversary in a separate ceremony on April 10.
Tusk said his invitation from Putin was an important step in improving relations, and that their honouring of Katyn victims had a 'very important symbolic aspect.' Putin reportedly told Tusk he knew what an important place Katyn had in Polish memory.
However, Polish President Lech Kaczynski did not receive an invitation, which caused speculation that Putin was punishing the Polish leader for his outspoken critiques of the Kremlin.
Kaczynski is regarded by some as a Eurosceptic, and emerged as one of Moscow's most vocal critics during the Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008.
Kaczynski could travel to Katyn, but nobody will meet him, an anonymous source from Russia's foreign ministry told the Russian edition of Newsweek. The source added that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev was not intending to invite Kaczynski either.

Why did the Poles have so many important people on one plane. It's never a good idea, considering politicians have many enemies.

I think what's interesting is that the acting president of Poland has some aristocratic ancestry. Looks like an Illuminati type of guy.
"Bronisław Komorowski was born in Oborniki Śląskie. Komorowski is son of Count Zygmunt Leon Komorowski (1924–1993) and Jadwiga Komorowska (née Szalkowska) (1921-). His family comes from the territory of Aukštaitija, northern Lithuania, and the Komorowski family for 200 years ruled Żywiecczyzna in Poland. He is distantly related to Princess Mathilde of Belgium, Duchess of Brabant, via her mother Anna Countess d'Udekem d'Acoz born Countess Komorowska. "
Not saying anything - just planting seeds... maybe there is some conspiracy - maybe not.

Indeed this is really strange... let's hope Poland ain't taking this as an assassination...
Because Poland is in NATO... and an attack on NATO is an attack on everyone, and that means WW3.
