Looking for Soviet press reports on Polish government-in-exile

Good evening everybody,

Can anyone advise whether I can access wartime Soviet press reports and polemics directed against the Polish government-in-exile and the Anders Army? I am particularly interested in 1944. Can these sources be accessed online somehow?
