Polish flag over the Reichstag

Was talking with a friend in Warsaw yesterday about my Klishin research and he told me an interesting story that he was not 100% sure was true.

Seems that Poles were the first to get to the top of the Reichstag and they planted their flag. Well, they were immediately shot by the Soviet troops when they arrived and the Polish banner taken down and replaced by the Soviet banner.

Any truth to this interesting story?
