Some local media had reported that despite the fact these two went official this year, their relationship had been going on for some time, but that has not been confirmed by either of them.

Milana’s Mom Speaks Up
A local news site, Eadaily, had reported that the two minors had “married” each other in a pretend ceremony, which was allegedly encouraged by their parents, as they would believe the story would generate a lot of income. It was also revealed that the two had also moved in together, though that has not been confirmed by either party. In light of the rumors that it was all to generate income, the parents of both children had allegedly denied these claims. Now speaking about the photos that many deemed inappropriate to be on social media pages of such young kids many had pointed out that according to the description on her page, Milana’s mom Darya is the one who runs it and therefore publishes the pics herself. Though as per the site Kyiv VGorode she allegedly claimed that she sees no problem with their relationship saying, “This is their life, and they will figure it out on their own.” Defending the ‘moving in rumors’ the woman also said it was taken out of context and that Mila was just going for a sleepover with Pasha and that it was a ‘family visit’ as they are ‘all friends’.
Milana’s Dad Is Shocked
While for the most part, everyone had been talking about Milana’s mom and the fact she supports their relationship and the things they post on social media, it turns out her dad has a completely different opinion. According to 7 News, the girl’s dad, who is divorced from her mother Darya, has revealed that he is “shocked” by the romance and the fact that his ex would even support it. He said he is now trying to get in touch with his daughter and offer her his help because according to him, “this is all, to put it mildly, very wrong”. But there had been a former politician and a lawyer that had been involved, so what did they have to say?
Former Politician Speaks Out
When the news about this influencer couple had gone viral, Ukrainian journalist and former politician Igor Mosiychuk had taken to his Facebook page and commented on this scandal noting that the entire situation “requires the immediate intervention of the National Police”. He went on to add that all this promotion on both Mila and Pasha’s social networks is very close to child pornography and is a breeding ground, which just like honey, attracts and stimulates pedophiles to act.
Lawyers Throw In Their Two Cents
A lawyer and criminologist, Anna Malyar had also taken to social media to comment on this case where she pointed out that parents are behaving almost negligently towards their children also adding that a “mother made a seductive woman out of an eight-year-old girl for perverts”. She also pointed out that this is dangerous for her followers, given that they are all young and that they are all easily influenced. Malyar commented on the fact that many of the children will see Milana as an idol and try to imitate her and become easy prey for pedophiles. To end her post she added that this goes against the normal sexual development of children.
