Angelina Jolie in surprise visit to Ukraine amidst Russian invasion

Hollywood actress and UN humanitarian Angelina Jolie has just made a surprise visit to the now war-torn country of Ukraine on Saturday. 

Visiting Western city of Lviv, Jolie, who has been an UNHCR special envoy for refugees since 2011, went to speak to displaced citizens who found refuge in the city. 

Some of the displaced citizens included children undergoing treatment for injuries sustained in missile strikes, particularly from the attacks on Kramatorsk railway station in early April. 

The attack had apparently deliberately targeted a crowd of women and children trying to flee, killing at least 52 and wounding many more. Lviv regional governor Maksym Kozytskiy said that she was very moved by the children’s stories. 

According to the governor, Jolie also visited a boarding school to talk with students as well as met evacuees arriving at Lviv’s central railway station and the volunteers providing medical help. 

Jolie also allegedly told the Ukrainians she would come back to visit. The actress has been known for her humanitarian impulse, but it was revealed that the journey to Lviv was done on her own personal capacity and had no connection to the UNHCR.
