Brit who left girlfriend for blonde Ukrainian refugee ‘wants to pummel Putin’

A Brit father-of-two who left his ex-girlfriend for a Ukrainian blonde bombshell refugee has said he wants to "pummell senile Vladimir Putin".

Sofiia Karkadym, 22, arrived at Tony and Lorna Garnett's household in Bradford, West Yorkshire, on May 4 after fleeing the city of Lviv, which was under attack from Russian President Vladimir Putin's troops, after organising it for months with Tony.

Ten days later, Tony and the Ukrainian stunner had eloped, much to the chagrin of Tony's ex Lorna Garnett, who changed her surname to his via deed poll.

The couple moved out of what is now Lorna's home and are now making plans to start a family, while Tony is also pursuing a new career in music.

Tony has previously said that a good thing came out of the conflict in Ukraine for him, in the form of Sofiia, but he still feels strongly about Putin'ss "special operation".

Speaking to the Daily Star, the 29-year-old said: "If I had the choice, I’d assassinate Putin myself. What’s gone on, and how these people are dealing with it, I don’t know how they’re coping.

"If I could send a message to Putin, you wouldn’t want to put it in your paper. He’s going to end up in hell."

Tony revealed that Sofiia knows people, including old classmates, who have died and people that are fighting in the war now.

"How he even calls it a ‘military operation’ is beyond me, it’s a f***** massacre. He’s killing kids, destroying schools and hospitals," Tony said.

The former prison guard added: "I think Putin is old and senile and something has gone in his head to be honest.

"If I was sitting across a table from Putin, I don’t even know what I’d say. I’d do time by pummelling him in.

"I’m British but I’m disgusted by our response. If we leave this, it’s only a matter of time before it turns into WW3.

"Enough is enough, we need to wipe him out. It’s gone on too long. Not just British soldiers, we should get the world together as humanity and say ‘enough is enough, you’re taking the p***’ and end this war."

Andriy Sadovyi, the mayor of Lviv, the western Ukrainian city that’s remained largely untouched by the Russian invasion, and Sofiia's hometown, is bracing for an escalation from pro-Russian Belarusian troops near its border.

“The danger of invasion from Belarus is actual – there are no guarantees that there will be no chemical attack or local nuclear strike,” Sadovyi said last week.

Tony, who said he'd be helping in the Ukrainian war effort were he not with Sofiia, added: "I do believe that Ukraine would win anyway, but at what cost? Look at the damage to villages that have been wiped out, and Mariupol."
