Oscar-winning actress Jessica Chastain visited Kyiv, Ukraine last weekend. She visited the Okhmatdyt children's hospital, and later met Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the head of the presidential administration, Andriy Yermak.
Chastain, who won best actress at this year's Oscars for "The Eyes of Tammy Faye", is the latest celebrity to show support for Ukraine, where the Russian invasion continues.
Zelenskyy posted pictures of the meeting on his Telegram account with the note: “American actress Jessica Chastain is in Ukraine today. For us, such visits of famous people are extremely valuable. Thanks to this, the world will hear, know and understand the truth about what is happening in our country even more. Thanks for the support!”
“Her story about our war will definitely be heard. We are preparing an important humanitarian event,” Zelenskyy added. “And I am grateful to all friends of Ukraine abroad and to everyone who helps expand our ties in the world. We are doing everything to win, everything to protect our country.”
Hollywood A-listers who have previously visited Ukraine include Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, Liev Schreiber and Angelina Jolie.
