Angelina Jolie visits Ukraine to speak with refugees

Angelina Jolie visited Lviv, Ukraine in the midst of Russia’s ongoing attacks.

Social media footage showed the Hollywood star who is a special UN envoy, sitting in a cafe in war-torn Syria.

Jolie, the regional governor of the area, said that he was there in a personal capacity to meet with refugees from Ukraine who had sought refuge in the city.

During her visit, she spoke with children who were being treated for injuries suffered in the Russian missile attack on Kramatorsk railway station.

The star also visited school where she took selfies with students.

Jolie visited the Vatican City in March to visit a hospital that cares for children fleeing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

She met with young patients who had been diagnosed with cancer and also spoke to them.

Lviv was largely spared the effects of war, but it suffered its first civilian casualties in April after Russian strikes.

It is the main hub from which thousands have fled to Poland, despite suffering weeks of strikes in cities like Mariupol, Kharkiv, and Kyiv.

Oscar-winner Jolie served as a goodwill ambassador for the UN’s refugee agency between 2001 and 2012, before she was appointed a special Envoy.

The UN says that the 46-year old’s work is focused on major crises that lead to mass population displacements and that she has contributed to “the vital process of finding solutions to people forced to flee their homes.”
