Host blamed for break-up because she was being too suspicious
A Ukrainian refugee has hit back at claims she is a “homewrecker” after starting a relationship with the long-term partner of a woman who gave her shelter in the UK and blamed her host for the split.
Sofiia Karkadym, 22, fled from Lviv to Bradford, West Yorkshire after Russia invaded Ukraine, and moved in with 28-year-old Lorna Garnett and her boyfriend of eight years, Tony, 29, earlier this month.
The IT worker made international headlines last week after Garnett accused her of running off with her partner, just 10-days after moving into the home the couple shared with their two children.
Speaking to The Sun, Karkadym has since claimed it was her host that drove the pair into each other’s arms through her “constant suspicions”.
“The tension, it just pushed me and Tony closer together,” she told the publication.
“She created this situation by constantly suggesting something was going on when it wasn’t. So this is her fault.”
Garnett had previously spoken of her reservations about hosting a stranger but said her desire to help the people of Ukraine overrode her concerns.
