Let me show you moment that was turning point in life of Lech Kaczynski
i do believe that most direct reason to assassinate Lech Kaczynski was to stop him to restore old Poland`s alliance with Serbians in order to re-create conditions for Intermarium. What two countries are most important if Poland wants Intermarium? First it is Hungary as the land connection to Serbia that is only regional player loyal to Poland; Second but crucial is Serbia itself as the main strategic Poland`s trump card, for far to many reasons. Among else, Serbia was/is also necessary to mediate between Poland and Russia, to convince Russians that future Intermarium isn`t threat to Russia. It because Poland need at least normal relations with Russia in order to be able to face problem s from western European side, that strongly hold Poland.
Now, back then in time of Lech Kaczynski official Poland had good relations with Hungary but was worsening relations with Serbia thanks to official NATO and EU policy. By the way, today`s Poland don`t have quite good relations with Hungary again thanks to official EU and NATO policy. With Serbia, official Poland have rather frozen relations because official Poland recognized Kosovo separation from Serbia, while there is no influential public figure that openly support Serbia. When Duda started his promotion of Intermarium, he started from Baltics. Its indicative because Baltic have no that strategic importance as Hungary and Serbia. So, its official but, events suggests that Hungary and Serbia coordinate to make moves that would support Poland`s real strategic aims. It all means that Poland have strong patriotic circles but, they are warned to be careful (by NATO and EU officials) not to cross red line, what was main Kaczynski`s mistake.
But, Poland had to follow official EU and NATO policy.
This is from Albanian propaganda web site back in 2006 >Poland backs 'free and independent' Kosovo: Albanian president
So, this was Poland`s official policy on Serbia until the September 25, 2008, no matter that majority of Poles looked positively on Serbs. That 25th September Lech Kaczynski changed things and refused shame for what i greatly respect him. He deflected from official NATO and EU policy at UN GA. It was major scandal not only because of Poland`s president deflected from following NATO and EU in anti-Serbian policy but also because Polish president publicly (during UN GA session) criticized government of his own country and by that PM of that government Tusk. It never until that day happened in history of UN that legitimate president of one country criticize legitimate government of that same country. Rift between Lech Kaczynski and Donald Tusk was all but not naive. It was clash and fight for policy that would dominate in Poland.

"I have never tried to hide that I consider it a mistake. However, the government's decision is legitimate, but I, too, have my competencies and I am saying with severity
This image is from the days when Lech Kaczynski decided to make a move >Exact date of image is 27 September 2008, 18:51; Lech Kaczyński (Poland) and Boris Tadić (Serbia) - Polish President promised his support to the Serbian sovereignty; Note: on the same picture, among diplomats behind the Serbian President Tadic, there was Vuk Jeremic that time Serbian Foreign Minister and today`s President of UN GA- young Serbian diplomat who won the presidency over UN GA in 2012 thanks to support of Poland and Russia. Jeremic is also known for respect by Polish patriotic circles.Vuk Jeremic as President of UN GAVuk Jeremic using Sarmatian symbolism
Back in those days in that September in 2008 year, messenger for Lech Kaczyński, i suppose was Vuk Jeremic. What Jeremic told to Kaczyński, what made that Lech Kaczyński openly confront NATO and EU policy during UN GA session and at the same time announce rift between him and Polish government with PM Tusk that Kaczyński indirectly named to be foreign factor imposed on Poland (if he oppose NATO/EU policy and then criticize his own government for following that policy, it meant that exactly that- that by opinion of Lech Kaczyński, Polish government don`t follow Polish interests by foreign interests.
So, what Vuk Jeremic told to Lech Kaczyński back in those days? i think that i can have a good guess. i think that Vuk Jeremic told two crucial sentences:
1. If official Poland adopt patriotic pro-Polish policy, Serbia would loyaly, as always work with Poland on establishment of Intermarium.
2. For that Serbia have Russian support, which also mean that Poland have green light from Russia if wants to restore Intermarium around Poland.
Katyn was opportunity for historical reconciliation between Poles and Russians. So, Kaczyński traveled to formalize that.
Rest is history ....
Then, Lech Kaczyński was stooped and Tusk gained more power. Official Poland continued to blindly follow EU and NATO dictate. Then, Duda came to power. Started where Lech was stooped, with patriotic policy but, more carefully. Still, he dared to speak of Intermarium. Branded as non-democratic man by EU and EU`s satellites within Poland.

...... (if he oppose NATO/EU policy and then criticize his own government for following that policy, it meant exactly that- that by opinion of Lech Kaczyński, Polish government don`t follow Polish interests but foreign interests.
