Heart of gmina – interview with Polish wójt

There were many foreign guests at the 2nd Forum of Amalgamated Hromadas held in Kyiv on 4 December, but the speech of Marcin Zawadka, mayor of a small rural gmina of the Plotsk district of the Mazovian Voivodship in central Poland, appeared to be the most memorable.
