A Ukrainian soldier who took to TikTok to keep his child updated has reappeared online after going five days without posting content.
The father stated, “I am alive, and will continue to fight for Ukraine.”
Understandably, his followers rushed to the comments section on his account. Messages like “He’s alive!!!!, “I've never been happier to see a stranger I've seen on TikTok my life’’ and “Thank goodness you’re ok, people thought you passed” followed his post.

The clip had racked up an impressive 222.4k likes and 1.1M views at the time of writing.
The update comes as Ukraine has now been confirmed to have an IT army ready to hack Russia in order to "continue the fight on the cyber front."
The group has now over 200,000 subscribers now with the number increasing quickly.
This comes as the hacker collective Anonymous have also announced plans to derail Russian cyber efforts. In a Twitter video a masked figure appears to give out an ominous warning directly to the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin.
