In an interview with News 8, Timur explained that his disabilities are believed to be from radiation exposure from Chernobyl, and his biological mother took him to an orphanage where he was later adopted at the age of three.

He was taught to be independent and always say his two slogans, “I can and I will.” Last September, one of Timur’s TikTok videos went viral, and he has since gained nearly 14 million likes.
