Suddenly sirens, the companions of Angelina Jolie (47) became hectic, then it was running: rocket alarm. In Lviv (Lemberg), in the vicinity of which several Russian “Kalibr” cruise missiles have already killed dozens of people, this alarm should be taken absolutely seriously.
The beautiful “Lara Croft” actress and UNHCR goodwill envoy fled to a bunker with her team, then waited until the all-clear. It is still unclear whether Jolie will continue her visit to Ukraine today, Sunday, and also travel to Kyiv.
The Oscar winner spoke to displaced persons and helpers in Lviv. During a visit to the train station, the special ambassador of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was particularly interested in the fate of the children. Volunteers told her that many of the displaced people in the station were children between the ages of two and ten.
“You must be in shock. I know how traumatic experiences affect children,” said Angelina Jolie. “I know it’s good for them when they have someone who shows them how important they and their causes are.”
During her visit, Jolie tickled a little girl, who laughed. She also posed for photos with the aid workers and refugees.
Jolie’s visit was publicized by a local journalist. Maia Pidhorodetska posted a video on Facebook showing Jolie in casual clothes and with a backpack arriving at the café. “Not special. Just Lviv. I only went for coffee. Just Angelina Jolie. Just Ukraine, which is supported by the whole world,” the journalist commented, according to Ukrinform agency.
