The initial goal of social media may have been to bring people closer together, but sometimes it can end up being the catalyst that tears them apart. One woman experienced the latter after a quick scroll through her Instagram feed exposed her husband’s infidelity.
It wasn’t a direct message or a photo of another woman that tipped Yulia Agranovych off to her spouse’s adultery. In fact, the clue was hidden in a seemingly innocuous Instagram of a St. Petersburg view, one which looked just a little too familiar.
The Instagram prompted Agranovych to lurk further, and in just a few taps, her husband’s true colours were revealed. Now, Yulia is filing for divorce after discovering that she wasn’t dealing with just one mistress, she was dealing with many.
Dentist and former model, Yulia Agranovych, began her morning like most others in the social media age, checking her Instagram timeline. However, her scrolling slowed to a halt when she came across one post from an account belonging to a woman she didn’t know, Vlada Abramovich.
The Instagram captioned: “City Lights,” showed a view of St. Petersburg, Russia, where she lives. While the picture may appear far from incriminating, Agranovych instantly recognized where it was taken from — her bedroom.
Naturally, Agranovych’s curiosity piqued and she began to look through Vlada’s Instagram profile. Yulia’s suspicions were confirmed after she found pictures of her husband, Nazar Grynko, on her photo feed.
Gringo’s cameo on Vlada’s profile was all the evidence Yulia needed to leave the snide comment under the initial Instagram: “Beautiful view from my husband’s bedroom.” Despite the wildly suggestive information on public display, Nazar was quick to try and deny his infidelity.
Nazar Grynko continued to spin his web of lies by telling his wife that the Instagram was from when she was away and he had friends over for a drink before going to the movies. He claimed that Vlada was one of his friend’s girlfriends.
Yulia was not that naive and knew for a fact that there would be no reason guests would have to enter the bedroom. Vlada did not initially confirm or deny her role as a mistress, but immediately deleted her Instagram account, which is telling enough.
Eventually, both parties admitted to cheating. However, Vlada showed no signs of remorse after the affair was exposed. In response to her critics, Vlada unapologetically stated, “She is his wife, not mine, what’s the problem? Is he a vegetable without free will? Don’t make me laugh.”
Grynko was not as callous and still tried to win back his wife, but he later admitted that he had several lovers when the two were apart. Yulia mockingly recalled her husband’s claims that he was “never mentally unfaithful” and “told every girl he was married.”
After discovering that she was unintentionally sharing her husband with multiple women, Yulia decided to start contacting them directly. Unsurprisingly, Grynko even lied when in his confession of his other affairs.
Luckily, Yulia found more solace in Nazar’s other conquests. “The other girls were much more pleasant, one even crying on the phone to me, saying she had no idea he was married,” Agranovych said. “So he was successful in his sorcery.”
Yulia’s story has managed to viral ever since she took her discoveries to the Russian news station Ren-TV. Agranovych revealed that many women have since come to support her and that her public divorce has inspired others to leave their unfaithful spouses.
“I’m so glad I got to know about it now and not when I became pregnant, for example, because we were planning to have a family,” Yulia stated. “Thank you, Vlada Abramovich – you are an experienced woman who taught me a good lesson.”
