Start your day with a summary of today’s top stories from Poland’s leading news sites. – The news broadcaster TVN24 reported that a long period of warm and sunny weather, which has left large parts of Poland dry, will come to an end this week as rain sweeps in from the east. But forecasters predict that many of the showers the change in the weather will bring will be light. As a consequence of the dry weather local authorities have issued fire warnings in a number of regions across Poland. – TVPInfo, the state-owned news channel, will broadcast a documentary this week examining the relations between Russia and Donald Tusk, the leader of the main opposition party and a former prime minister, the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza reported. The documentary, entitled 'Reset' will explore Tusk's policy towards Russia during the time he was in office.

He said that the coalition has led in the polls for a long time, and, he added, has the capacity to convince undecided voters to support it. – Poles are becoming less eager to help Ukrainians, the newspaper Rzeczpospolita wrote, citing research carried out by Warsaw University and the Warsaw University of Economics and Humanities.

One of the reasons for the change in opinion is an apparent "entitlement attitude" some refugees exhibit.
