Footage has emerged of Angelina Jolie being brought to safety after the air raid sirens sounded during her visit to the Ukrainian city of Lviv.

Lviv has been attacked by Vladimir Putin’s army in recent weeks. Earlier this month, a Russian missile attack on the western city left at least seven people dead.

While Jolie, the UN special envoy who has been doing humanitarian work for many years, was visiting a shelter on Saturday (April 30), an air raid siren sounded. and the actor was able to quickly travel with an entourage, before getting into a car.

At one point, Jolie waved to the camera and said, “I’m fine.”

Lviv regional governor Maksym Kozytsky said Jolie has spoken to displaced people seeking refuge in Lviv, including children being treated for injuries sustained in the missile attack on Kramatorsk station in early April.

“She was very touched by [the children’s] Kozytsky writes on social networks. ‘One girl was even able to tell Jolie privately about the dream she had. “

He said Jolie also visited a boarding school, where she talked to students and took pictures with them.

Earlier this week, Jolie was spotted drinking coffee in Lviv and signing autographs.

The details of Jolie’s visit to Ukraine are unknown, but in February she posted on social media: “Like many of you, I am praying for the Ukrainian people. My focus with my @refugees colleagues is everything that can be done to ensure the protection and basic human rights of displaced people and refugees in the region. .

“We have seen reports of casualties and people are starting to leave their homes in search of safety.

“It’s too early to know what will happen, but the importance of this moment – for the Ukrainian people, and for the international rule of law – cannot be overstated.”

Jolie has visited other war zones while doing humanitarian work. Last month, she visited Yemen in an effort to relieve refugees from the country’s ongoing civil war. She visited Yemeni families, including displaced families and refugees, to hear first-hand how the conflict has affected their lives.

In 2011, Jolie visited western Mosul less than a year after the city was liberated by Isis forces.
