Milla Jovovich is “heartbroken and dumbstruck” over the Russian invasion of her home country.
On Friday, the Ukrainian-born actress shared a lengthy Instagram post about trying to “process the events” in her birthplace.
“My country and people being bombed. Friends and family in hiding,” she wrote.
The “Resident Evil” star went on to explain that she has close ties to both Russia and Ukraine.
“My blood and my roots come from both Russia and Ukraine. I am torn in two as I watch the horror unfolding, the country being destroyed, families being displaced, their whole life lying in charred fragments around them.
“I remember the war in my father’s homeland of former Yugoslavia and the stories my family tells of the trauma and terror they experienced. War. Always war,” she continued. “Leaders who cannot bring peace. The never ending juggernaut of imperialism. And always, the people pay in bloodshed and tears.”
The 46-year-old actress, also included a link to organizations that are aiding the people of Ukraine.
Jovovich was born in the country’s capital, Kyiv to a Russian mother and Serbian father and spent much of her early childhood in Moscow, her mother’s native city. In 1980, when she was five, the family left the Soviet Union and moved to London before eventually settling in Los Angeles.
Other celebs have spoken up in support of Ukraine including Ashton Kutcher who is married to Ukrainian-born actress Mila Kunis.
