The lawmaker practice in the USA is paid, but the MPs receive little money. At the same time, the Ukrainian understood that after becoming a lawmaker, she would be forced to leave the practice of law. She says that money is not the main thing for her.
"The main thing is the changes that I can implement in the city…I do this because I love this country and am grateful for what it gives us. Also, as an emigrant, I am worried about what, as I see it, is happening with the country,” Vernikov says.
