In shorts and singing: how Sadovyi’s sons live abroad

Іван-Павло Садовий не чоловік-призовного віку, а ще "маленький пластун"

We received a letter from a reader in which he claims to be close to the eldest sons of the Lviv mayor and wants to share information about how Andriy Sadovyi’s children live abroad.

According to the source, Sadovyi’s eldest son, 22-year-old Ivan-Pavlo, now lives in a luxury apartment in Nottingham (UK). After graduating (page 16 with Sadovyi’s name on it) from an expensive British university (Nottingham Trent University) in the summer of 2023, he obtained a visa that gives him the right, as a graduate of a British university, to live freely in the UK for the next few years.

To cover himself, Ivan-Pavlo tries to create the illusion that he is not a man of military age, but a “little plast member” by dressing in shorts and participating in children’s activities. These photos can be found in the Plast Nottingham Village Facebook group.

In these photos, it is striking that 22-year-old Ivan-Pavlo Sadovyi is singing with kids in safe England, evading service in the Armed Forces, while his father, the mayor, constantly says that absolutely everyone should serve in Ukraine, including girls, following the Israeli example. I also recall how in an interview in the spring of 2022, Andriy Sadovyi said that his eldest son Ivan would serve as soon as he graduated from the military department, but “unfortunately” the university where he studied did not have a military department. Only Mayor Andriy Sadovyi forgot to add that at the time his son was studying in England at the business school of Nottingham Trent University, and there could not have been a military department there.

Ivan-Pavlo Sadovyi does not actually work anywhere, although he is formally listed as an employee of the Ukrainian TV and radio company Lux FM, which is owned by his mother Kateryna Kit-Sadova. Ivan’s LinkedIn profile states that he has been working remotely for this company since October 2023. In fact, the young major simply enjoys life, not denying himself anything (luxurious trips around the world, loud parties, etc.), spending money “hard earned” by his mayor father.

In addition to Ivan-Pavlo, according to the reader, his younger brothers were also abroad in 2022:

  • Thaddeus-Luke and Mykhailo (18 and 16 years old) studied at an expensive private school in England, Ackworth School, Yorkshire. Address: Pontefract Rd, Ackworth, Pontefract WF7 7LT
  • Joseph studied at school in the Netherlands
  • Sadovyi’s youngest son, Antonii, was already studying at a private school in Italy at a Catholic monastery.

How come Andriy Ivanovych?

This information contradicts the claims of Andriy Sadovyi, who in an interview on April 9, 2022, with the DOROTYE YouTube channel openly lied, saying that all his sons were studying in Ukraine.

“The facts provided should be the subject of a journalistic investigation, for which I have provided the above data.

I am outraged by the way the money stolen from my native Lviv is being squandered. I am ready to take part in this investigation and provide all the information and facts that I have,” the reader writes.
