As this is Aga's last episode as a co-host, her and Adam start with a reflection on their cooperation over the past year and a half, with a surprise entrance by another former co-host, Maciek Makulski! They then discuss current developments in the region, including the arrest of prominent Russian pro-war blogger Igor Girkin and the continuous Russian missile strikes against Odesa following Moscow's withdrawal from the Black Sea grain deal.

Aga then sits down with three guests - Stephan Müller from the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma, Isak Skenderi from a Kosovo-based NGO "Voice of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians" (VORAE), and Natali Tomenko from the Agency for the Advocacy of Roma Culture (ARCA) in Ukraine. Together they discuss the experience of different Roma communities in conflict zones and post-conflict environments, using the example of Kosovo as a source of lessons learned for Ukraine.
