Leonardo DiCaprio, like many other intellectuals, decided to support war-torn Ukraine. He donated $10 million to her. An interesting fact is that the grandmother of Helen Indenbirkin, the actor’s grandmother, was born in Odessa with the name Yelena Stepanovna Smirnov. After the Russian Revolution of 1917, she emigrated with her parents to Germany. She was then three years old. She had a very strong relationship with her grandson. She sometimes accompanies him during his film screenings, such as the premiere of “Aviator”. Helen Indenbirken died on August 5, 2008 at the age of 93.
Actors, directors and people of broad culture express their solidarity with Ukraine. Robert De Niro said during a meeting at Cambridge University that everything must be done to stop Russian aggression. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively encourage Ukraine to take part in a fundraiser for Ukraine and pledge to double each amount donated. Kyiv-born Mila Jovovich, who has Ukrainian and Russian roots, is horrified by the situation in Ukraine and, as she herself admitted, is torn in two.
In turn, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher said in a video posted on Friday that they intend to support humanitarian activities in Ukraine. Kunis and Kutcher plan to donate $3 million. The goal is to raise $30 million.
“Thanks to GoFundMe, the fundraising will have an immediate impact on humanitarian relief efforts for refugees. The fund will support Flexport.org and Airbnb.org, two organizations active in the field, providing assistance to those who need it most. Flexport .org organizes the supply of supplies to refugee centers In Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova Airbnb.org offers free short-term rental housing to people fleeing Ukraine, and Ashton and I have committed $3 million. We hope to raise a total of $30 million for proud and brave Ukrainians who deserve our help “- emphasized Kunis.
Reed Hastings, co-founder and owner of Netflix, has also donated a large sum to Ukraine. He reported his decision on Twitter. As stated by director Yevgeny Avinevsky, who is responsible for the documentary “Winter on Fire: Ukrainian Freedom Struggle”. The Oscar-nominated movie can be watched on Netflix.
