Now updated; Jaroslaw Kaczynski does not appear to be on the plane, but speaker of the Parliament, Deputy Foreign Minister and top-ranking general of the army dead alongside Mr and Mrs Kaczynski. The Tu-154 plane hit trees in thick fog about a mile from Smolensk airport and broke into pieces.

Looking at the list it appears Komorowski is not among the missing, so I assume as speaker he now becomes acting President. The deputy speaker Smajdzinski was killed, along with Kachorowski, the president of the former government in exile, and Deputy Prime Minister Gosiewski among others

Are the Russians blaming the Germans for it?

From the Guardian: The pilot was told Smolensk airport was closed because of thick fog, according to the news agency Interfax. He was offered a choice of landing instead in either Moscow or Minsk, the capital of Belarus. But he decided to continue with the original flight plan and land at Smolensk. He made three unsuccessful attempts to land .... On the fourth try the plane fell apart.
