Radar was broken in Smolensk

According to newspapers in Poland, the radar that was used in the precision approach was not calibrated.

Radar at the airport in Smolensk show incorrect data. Faulty equipment defined the height of an airplane landing with an accuracy of only 300 meters! Deceive the inspectors so they could give wrong contact details for the pilots.

These striking facts agreed by the Russians themselves, making a test flight over the airfield. But I do not want to give Poland a report from this study.
