The area of the Polish presidential plane crash is presently being heavily guarded, but later a commemorative marker will be placed there, the Smolensk region governor said on Wednesday.
"Law enforcement officers see that no one performs unsanctioned excavations or rummaging at the plane crash site...We plan to put up a commemorative marker at the plane crash site," Sergei Antufiev said.
He said people are allowed into the area to place flowers and candles and are not stopped by police authorities.
The Polish president, his wife, and an official Polish delegation of senior officials died when the plane taking them to a ceremony to pay tribute to some 20,000 Polish officers murdered by Soviet secret police crashed near west Russia's Smolensk on April 10.
