Today’s news round-up in Poland Kalbar/TFN

Start your day with a summary of today’s top stories from Poland’s leading news sites. – State-owned news broadcaster TVP Info ran a story on how Radek Sikorski, one of the most well-known names in opposition politics, has, allegedly, become a "problem" for his party, Civic Platform. Sikorski's apparent insistence that a "reset" in Russian relations was the right decision when he was Polish foreign minister has, TVP wrote, upset the party's leadership at a time when relations with Russia are under scrutiny. – Vegetable prices are rising despite it now being the time they traditionally fall in price, the newspaper Rzeczpospolita wrote. The prices result from supply problems caused by droughts in Europe last year, and the possibility that this year's vegetable growing season could also be affected by adverse weather. There is also growing interest in and demand for vegetables. – Poland's border security services are preparing themselves for what could be a tense summer on the Belarusian border, according to the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza. There are fears that the Belarusian government might try to repeat the migration crisis that hit the border two years ago. Activists who help migrants on the border have reported an increase in the number of patrols by the Polish Border Guard both on and land and in the air. Locals also fear that a state of emergency, limiting public access, might be re-introduced in their area. – The Supreme Audit Office has accused Przemylsaw Czarnek of "illegal and dishonest behaviour," news broadcaster TVN24 reported on Tuesday. The alleged behaviour related to the allocation of PLN 6 million (EUR 1.35 mln) to entities that failed to meet the criteria needed to receive funding. Agnieszka Dzemianowicz-Bak, an MP with the Left party, said they were notifying the Prosecutor's Office about the possibility of Czarnek having committed a crime.
