Angelina Jolie’s mystery visit to the Ukrainian capital

Angelina Jolie was reportedly spotted in Ukraine during a visit to the city of Lviv.

In a video shared on Facebook, the actor can be seen smiling and waving to fans as she ordered coffee.

Jolie worked as a special envoy for the UN Refugee Agency for many years, but details of her trip to Ukraine are unclear.

The video, which shows Jolie signing a piece of paper and waving to the camera, was posted to Facebook by Ukrainian Maya Pidhorodetska and has since been shared more than 19,000 times.

Ms. Pidhorodetska wrote an article with the video in Ukrainian which, translated by Google, read: “Nothing special. Just Lviv. I just went for coffee. Just Angelina Jolie.

“Ukraine is simply supported by the whole world.”

Lviv in western Ukraine has been under attack by the Russian military in recent weeks and earlier this month a missile attack on the city left at least seven people dead.

In February, Jolie opened up about the war in Ukraine in a message to her 12.7 million Instagram followers.

She wrote: “Like many of you, I pray for the Ukrainian people.

“My goal, along with my fellow @refugees, is that everything is done to ensure the protection and basic human rights of displaced people and refugees in the region.

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

“It is 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.”
