TVP was once again in the heat of criticism
On Saturday, September 17, the shipping channel on the Vistula Spit was officially opened. In connection with the event, TVP decided to organize a special concert. The event was announced by the former president of the public broadcaster, Jacek Kurski. He announced then that a galaxy of stars, including disco polo representatives, would appear on stage.
After Jacek Kurski's resignation on September 5, his successor first decided to cancel the concert and then organize it, but without the disco polo stars. Mateusz Matyszkowicz stated that the event would commemorate the 83rd anniversary of the Soviet aggression against Poland.

Confusion around the concert
TVP sent information to the local government about the organization of a concert for about a thousand people. The authorities of Elbląg drew attention to the fact that the event may want to be attended by many more people, and this requires compliance with specific procedures related to a mass event. That is why TVP decided to introduce a limit on os & oacute; b.
Hence, only a handful of people were in front of the stage, and the rest could only hear what was happening on the stage, because the view was obscured by a black foil stretched around & oacute; ł. After the wave of criticism faced by Telewizja Polska, it was decided to issue a special statement.
