Both state leaders seemed deeply moved. Poland's Lech Wałęsa said emotion had rendered him speechless as he met with the Russian president's envoy. Russian President Boris Yeltsin dabbed his eyes with a handkerchief several times during his meeting with Polish journalists. This atmosphere accompanied the final explanation of the all-important problem in the history of relations between Warsaw and Moscow: the murder of thousands of Polish officers by the Soviet NKVD in the spring of 1940.
