Ben Stiller visits Ukraine after meeting refugee families in Poland

Hollywood actor Ben Stiller was photographed in Ukraine just a day after meeting with Ukrainian refugees from Poland, who were forced to flee war-torn Poland.

On Sunday, the 56-year-old US star was seen walking through Lviv while he spoke on his cell phone.

The attack on the western city by Russian troops over the three-month-long invasion left it vulnerable, but the damage has been minimal compared to those in the east.

Stiller is a UNHCR goodwill ambassador. He flew to Rzeszow, southeastern Poland, a day before to help raise awareness about the refugee crisis.

He posted on his Instagram that he was visiting families “whose lives were torn apart in Ukraine

According to him, millions of people were forced from their homes by President Vladimir Putin’s troops, with more that 90% being children and women.

Stiller said, “I’m here for learning, to share stories that demonstrate the human impact on war and to amplify calls to solidarity.”

“Everyone has the right of safety. Whoever. Wherever. Whenever.”

In another post, Tropic Thunder and Zoolander star Tropic Thunder were pictured hugging two refugee kids near the Medyka border of Poland.

He stated, “I had the opportunity to meet some families that fled war in Ukraine leaving behind loved ones with no idea when or where they can return home.”

Angelina Jolie , a Hollywood actress and UN humanitarian, made an unexpected visit to Lviv in April to speak to the displaced persons who had sought refuge in the city.
