"It's absolutely impossible that the wing sheared and then it crashed the way [government investigators] described," Binienda told The Plain Dealer in his first U.S. interview.
"We try to show that hasty judgment has been made, and the case should be re-opened and re-examined properly, without any conflicts of interest," said Mateusz Kochanowski, a spokesman for European Conservatives and Reformists, or ECR.

That's the only pic I have, it does show the precise spot the plane crashed though, but sadly it's not a wide-angle view of the area. It doesn't look heavily forested, and the description of the area is of small trees and brush.
You may feel confident in saying it was "pilot error" but the official story isn't jiving with crash site evidence and analysis by experts like Binienda.
but trying to land without guidance in dense fog is asking for trouble.
The Polish investigators reached the same conclusion.

Not sure there's any conspiracy here so much as simple incompetence on the part of the Russian "investigators".

Polish leader, 95 others dead in Russia jet crash
MOSCOW – Polish President Lech Kaczynski and some of the country's highest military and civilian leaders died on Saturday when the presidential plane crashed as it came in for a landing in thick fog in western Russia, killing 96, officials said.
Russian and Polish officials said there were no survivors on the 26-year-old Tupolev, which was taking the president, his wife and staff to events marking the 70th anniversary of the massacre in Katyn forest of thousands of Polish officers by Soviet secret police.
The crash devastated the upper echelons of Poland's political and military establishments. On board were the army chief of staff, national bank president, deputy foreign minister, army chaplain, head of the National Security Office, deputy parliament speaker, civil rights commissioner and at least two presidential aides and three lawmakers, the Polish foreign ministry said.
