Milla Jovovich has spoken out about the violence in the Ukraine.
“I wonder what more I can do to help my people struggling in the Ukraine right now and going there to protest is obviously not an option, especially when it’s hard to know what is right and what is wrong,” she posted on Facebook. "I cannot jump to conclusions, there are always such grey areas in power struggles and the only “side” I will take is the one that will try and get help to the people who have nothing to do with all this, the mothers, their children and the elderly. I have no taste for politics, but I will do everything in my power to help the helpless, not the ones with guns. How will I do this? I have no clue yet!
“I have been doing night shoots on a film for the last month, got sick because of it and been taking care of and educating my 6 year old daughter in the process. But I have always put my money where my mouth is when it comes to helping people and you better believe I will find out what I can personally do for the victims of the violence in the Ukraine.”
The Kiev-born actress has spent the last few days researching how to help people affected by the violence that has erupted in her homeland.
“After a lot of thought, i have decided to post 3 websites,” she posted yesterday. “Two information sites and one donation site. The donation site is the ukrainian red cross webpage because reading through the news reports, red cross volunteers seem to be mentioned more than any other. Plus, i feel confident donating to them myself, especially with the lack of real time to make these kinds of decisions. i feel that at least we all know that donating there will bring help where it is needed right now. i will continue to research other places as well, but action needs to be taken ASAP to help the many injured in Kiev and the communities outside the capital.”
