Russia's President to start today first visit to Poland in 8 years.

By bne IntelliNews December 6, 2010
Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev is due to start his 24-hour visit to Poland today at noon local time. This will be the first official visit by the head of state of the Russian Federation since early 2002 (except for Medvedev's attendance of President Lech Kaczynski's funeral in April, 2010). The president is due to meet his Polish counterpart Bronislaw Komorowski and PM Donald Tusk; he will also sign a number of Polish-Russian agreements and will participate in the Polish-Russian Forum of Civic Dialogue. A few days earlier, Russia's lower chamber of parliament, the Duma, approved a resolution recognizing that Josef Stalin's regime was responsible for the 1940 massacre of more than 20,000 Polish officers, this signalling - according to CNN - a thawing of relations between Poland and Russia. tom
