The MEP was to receive PLN 10,000 a month, he had a company car and a refund for fuel. As he explains, his colleagues from the union asked him to collect his salary. – It was decided that I should not stand out from other vice-presidents of the union and I started to receive a salary – argues Ryszard Czarnecki.

– In the volleyball community, it was considered that a situation where one president collects funds, the second and third collects, and the fourth does not, is an awkward, artificial situation and I was convinced not to do it – he explains.
