Ukrainian cat Stepan has received an award as one of the world's best influencers and bloggers.
The famous Ukrainian cat-blogger Stepan took part in a forum of the world’s best influencers and bloggers at the Hotel Martinez in Cannes, France on May 18 and 19.
He walked red carpet in the company of the famous Italian TikTok star Khaby Lame. As of 2022, the 22-year-old video blogger is the second most followed blogger on TikTok.
At the opening ceremony of the blogger forum, Stepan the Cat looked no less elegant than Khaby Lame in his tuxedo – he was wearing a bow tie in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
This evening, the Ukrainian cat was awarded an honorary award of the World’s Top Influencers and Bloggers 2022.
The cat award was presented by Ukrainian influencer Santa Dimopulos. She shared a photo with Stepan after the ceremony on her Instagram.
Ukrainian sapper dog Patron congratulated Stepan the Cat on the award:
“Stepan, congratulations on your victory! Will you let me sniff the award when you return to Ukraine? And I'll introduce you to my cat Tom. He is excited about you.”
Since the beginning of the war that Russia launched against Ukraine, Stepan the Cat, who lived in Kharkiv, was evacuated to France. There he managed to raise $10,000 to help Ukrainian animals.
As of now, 1.3 million people have subscribed to Stepan the Cat's Instagram.
