The Ukrainian refugee, whose UK sponsor left his partner and children behind for them, has spoken out for the first time since leaving.

Tony Garnett, 30, split from 22-year-old Sofiia Karkadym after a whirlwind romance that saw the security guard leave his family in May.

Sofiia claimed Tony treated her like a “dog body” and gambled his money online while relying on her benefits.

She described how “heartbroken” she was after “believing Tony’s bulls**t,” but added, “Ukrainian women are strong. Vladimir Putin will not destroy us – and Tony Garnett will not destroy me.’

Sofiia told The Sun: “I really loved him and thought we would spend the rest of our lives together and have children, but he has changed. I think the pressure got to him.

“It will be a long and hard journey for me now but I will rebuild my life and when I do that I will be glad he is no longer a part of it.”

Tony told MailOnline a different story, insisting he was “100% done” with Sofia’s alleged “irrational” behavior.

He said: “I’ve worked so hard to make this relationship work. I knew we would look like Tw*ts if we broke up because we have a media profile and all the attention we get on TV and the internet.

Tony’s ex-partner, Lorna Garnett, of 10 years, said she “loves him” and will raise her two daughters with him but wouldn’t take him back “in a million years”.

Sofiia moved to live with Tony, Lorna and their children in Bradford, West Yorkshire after a two-month escape from Ukraine.

Lorna said she noticed the pair were flirting with each other and asked Sofiia to leave after just 10 days.

But Tony shocked her when he said, “If Sofiia goes, I’ll go”.

Tony and Sofia moved in with his parents before the new couple could get their own apartment.

But things quickly fell apart, with Tony even calling the police twice in two days about Sofiia – when she was trying to collect her belongings after the split.

Sofia now lives in an emergency shelter.
