Just what they need – Multimillionaire Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie visits the Ukraine




Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie visited the Ukrainian city of Lviv, entered a bakery and headed to the train station to meet some of those displaced by the ongoing conflict.

46-yr-old Jolie is a special envoy for the UN refugee agency, which says more than 12.7 million people have fled their homes in the last two months.

This equates to about 30% of Ukraine’s pre-war population. While visiting the station, the actress met volunteers who work with displaced people, who told her that each of the psychiatrists on duty treats about 15 people a day.

Many of those at the station are children between the ages of 2 and 10, according to volunteers.
