MOSCOW — Russian prosecutors say four soldiers have been charged with stealing credit cards from the wreckage of the plane crash that killed Polish President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others.
The federal Investigative Committee said Tuesday that the soldiers were attached to the airport in the western Russian city of Smolensk, near the site of the early April plane crash.
The plane was carrying Kaczynski and a high-ranking delegation to a memorial ceremony for Polish prisoners of war massacred by Soviet secret forces at the start of World War II.
Polish officials on Monday said $1,700 was withdrawn using a card that belonged to Andrzej Przewoznik who oversaw Poland's wartime memorials.
They said the thieves failed to obtain cash from another card that belonged Przewoznik.
