Angelina Jolie visited the city of Lviv in western Ukraine amid Russia’s ongoing attack on the country.
Footage posted on social media shows the Hollywood star, who is a UN special envoy, in a cafe in the war-torn country.
The district’s regional governor said Jolie, who was visiting in a personal capacity, had come to talk to displaced Ukrainians who had taken refuge in the city.
During her trip, she spoke with children undergoing treatment for injuries sustained in a Russian missile strike at Kramatorsk railway station.
The star also visited a school, where he met with students and posed for a selfie with them.
In March, Jolie traveled to Rome and visited a hospital near the Vatican to care for children fleeing the Ukraine-Russia conflict.
She sat down and talked to young patients, some of whom have cancer, and met with doctors and nurses who provide care at the hospital.
Lviv remained largely unharmed by the war, but registered its first civilian deaths in mid-April after the Russian coups.
It is the center through which tens of thousands of people have fled to neighboring Poland after enduring weeks of strikes in cities such as Kyiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol.
Oscar winner Jolie was a goodwill ambassador to the UN refugee agency from 2001 to 2012, before being appointed special envoy.
According to the UN, the 46-year-old woman’s work focuses on “major crises leading to mass displacement” and has helped “contribute to the vital process of finding solutions for people forced to leave their homes”.
