In the opinion of Czeslaw Szafran [4, p. 244], the most persistent supporter of the hypothesis that Russian secret agents were responsible for death of General Sikorski was Jan Nowak – Jezioranski. It is a fact that Ivan Maisky’s plane was standing next to the one Sikorski arrived in at the Gibraltar airport. In Jezioranski’s opinion, the results of the British investigation held in 1943 were not trustworthy. He was convinced that the British purposely concealed facts, which proved that general’s death might not be an accident. He also indicated that NKVD agents, infiltrating British secret service, had access to the Gibraltar airport. Jezioranski thought that Stalin was interested in the Polish prime minister’s demise, and that one of the British intelligencemen (serving Soviet secret service as well), the infamous Harold (Kim) Philby, who in 1943 was the chief of the British counterespionage for Iberian Peninsula, was responsible for general’s death.

According to Czeslaw Szafran: “There’s no evidence that it was Russian sabotage” [4, p. 225f]. He also reminds that Maisky, in his letter dated on December 27, 1966, to Rolf Hochhuth, the author of the play “The Soldiers” (1967), pledged on his honor that he had nothing to do with General Sikorski’s death [4, p. 225f]. The chief of the Gestapo, Heinrich Müller, hired to work for the CIA by the chief of the Switzerland chapter of that organization in Bern in 1948, said otherwise [3, p.256]..
