News Desk: Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has paid a surprise visit to Lviv to see Ukrainians displaced by the war with Russia.
The bomber struck shortly afternoon in front of a crowd of 2,000 people, according to Reuters.
Jolie, 46, is a special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees; According to estimates, 12.7 million people in Ukraine have been displaced by the two-month war. This number is about 30 percent of the country’s population before the conflict began.
During a visit to Lviv on Saturday, Jolie toured a boarding school and a medical institute, CNN reported.
He also met with volunteers assisting the displaced at Lviv Station.
Volunteers told him that the psychiatrists in charge now have to talk to about 15 people every day. They also said that many of the displaced people at the station are between the ages of two and 10.
At the station, Jolie tickles a little girl in a red dress, and she laughs happily. The Hollywood actress later took pictures with volunteers and children.
Jolie and her companions then hurried out of the station and into the waiting car when the airstrike warning signal sounded.
Jolie also visited Yemen in March as a special envoy of the UN refugee agency; Hundreds of thousands of people from the Middle East have also been displaced by the Saudi-led war with the Houthis.
