In the year 2020, Stepan’s mother began uploading pictures and videos of him on Instagram and TikTok, and he has since become an internet sensation. A million people follow him on both platforms because they know that he’s going to brighten their day with his lighthearted posts.
Stepan enjoys posing for cute and amusing shots because he’s so quirky and curious. Stepan’s life and routine, on the other hand, have recently had to change due to his family’s relocation to Ukraine.

Everyone was concerned for Stepan and his family’s safety when Russia invaded Ukraine for the first time. They commented on his posts and even formed a Twitter account for him to post updates and spread the word about what he was going through. Everyone hoped that Stepan and his family were alright because they hadn’t been posting much.
They finally had the opportunity to write an update and let everyone know that Stepan’s family was able to leave Ukraine with Stepan.
Stepan’s family documented their experience on social media, writing, “We spent two nights in the basement and were without electricity for a week.” When we couldn’t find a phone charger nearby, we had to head to the basement. We were able to escape the city after that. Volunteers in Kharkiv assisted by driving us to the train station. We boarded the Kharkiv-to-Lviv train (in 20 hours, we got to Lviv). After that, we made our way to the Polish border. We had to wait in line at a pedestrian crossing to cross the border. Many folks were in attendance (4 to 5 thousand). we crossed the border after a long nine hours”
Stepan and his family were forced to flee when the conflict came knocking at their door, and they had no choice but to leave. There was no way they could have left Stepan behind, no matter how tough it must have been to find a place to hide. Fortunately, Stepan was able to travel across the nation with them without incident, and he even had time to enjoy the scenery from the train’s windows. The family has moved to France and is expecting to return to Ukraine in the near future.
After arriving in Poland, the family received assistance from the Monaco-based World Influencers and Bloggers Association. It was thanks to them that we were able to get to France and wait for the day when we could go home. I think we’re all doing fine now. Relatives in Ukraine are dear to us, and we’re devoted to doing everything that we can to support them.
Many people have been touched by Stepan’s story, and they are relieved to hear that he and his family have been saved.
