Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has recently shared a message of prayer for the people who are the victims of the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
The Eternals actor took to her Instagram handle to share a statement on the Russia-Ukraine conflict in her capacity as a special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). “Like many of you, I’m praying for the people in Ukraine,” Jolie said in the statement adding, “My focus along with my @refugees colleagues is that everything possible is done to ensure the protection and basic human rights of those displaced, and refugees in the region.”
“We have already seen reports of casualties and people starting to flee their homes to seek safety. It is too soon to know what will happen, but the significance of this moment – for the people of Ukraine, and for the international rule of law – cannot be overstated,” she noted.
The link she shared led to a statement from the UNHCR that reads, “We are gravely concerned about the fast-deteriorating situation and ongoing military action in Ukraine.”
“The humanitarian consequences on civilian populations will be devastating. There are no winners in war, but countless lives will be torn apart,’ the statement continued.
