I've rekindled my romance with a Ukrainian refugee I left my partner for – we're going to make it work | The Sun

A LOVE rat dad who left his partner for a Ukrainian refugee has now rekindled his romance with her three months after their bitter split.

Tony Garnett, 30, flew to the war-torn country to give Sofiia Karkadym, 22, another chance after her drunken outbursts caused him to dump her.

The pair got together just ten days after he and his partner of ten years Lorna welcomed the refugee into the home they shared with their two children in Bradford.

But just months later, Tony dumped Sofiia too – leaving her "heartbroken".

The dad has now revealed he is back and loved up with the IT manager and has even met her family in Ukraine.

He told Mail Online: "I think we can make this work. She's a really attractive woman and always has interesting stuff to talk about.

"I want to know her much better and this time we will take things slower."

Tony and Sofiia moved into a rented cottage in Bradford after he left Lorna and their two children.

The security guard then dumped his new lover after claiming she was repeatedly drunk and abusive towards him.

Tony said the final straw came following an argument in September while celebrating his 30th birthday at their new love nest.

He claimed the police were called after Sofiia allegedly "rammed a knife into the wall in the kitchen several times while she was drunk".

She returned to her home country after her visa expired and Tony admitted he had made a "huge mistake".

But the couple kept in touch and last week he visited his ex in Ukraine after crossing the border from Poland.

After meeting her family near Lviv, Tony and Sofiia have now returned to Yorkshire to give things another go.

He said: "I went to Ukraine and brought her back. It was not a great place to be.

"There were regular power cuts and the Russians fired about missiles at Lviv when I was there. Luckily the Ukrainian defence systems intercepted them.

"I hope people give us a break and let us be. I am thick skinned, but there is no place for strangers to insult us on the internet."

The couple are now discussing marriage with Tony planning to get a job so they can afford a place to rent.

Sofiia is also planning to go to college and is looking forward to her future with the cheat.

The pair have even discussed getting vasectomy reversed so they they can have children in the future.

Sofiia said: "I love Tony very much and I would like to marry him when we can. I have really missed him.

"I was very upset when I came here because I left my family behind and I did drink too much. I have promised him that I will never touch any alcohol again and I have not drank any.

"I am glad that he came to Ukraine to bring me back and that showed me that he really does care for me.

"I hope Tony and I can stay together forever. We are very good together, but the arguments spoiled everything."

Lorna Garnett, who had changed her surname by deed poll to match Tony’s but is not married to him, previously told The Sun on Sunday Sofiia would wear low-cut tops and makeup to impress Tony.

The mum said she was left feeling like the "third wheel" in her former relationship and "unwelcome in her own home".

She said of the latest twist in the saga: "He is a good dad, but I am surprised they are back as a couple. But they deserve each other as far as I am concerned."
