Mila Kunis honored the “resilience” of the Ukrainian individuals during the Oscars 2022 this evening (March 27).
Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24, 2022, with in excess of 1,080 regular citizens killed since the assaults started as of Thursday (March 24), as per NBC. A further 1,707 individuals have been harmed up to this point.
Presenting a presentation from Best Original Song candidate Reba McEntire, the Ukrainian-conceived Kunis offered remarks insinuating the continuous clash. “Recent global events have left many of us feeling gutted,” she said.
Later, the Academy held a moment of silence “to show our support for the people of Ukraine currently facing invasion, conflict and prejudice within their own borders”.
“While film is an important avenue for us to express our humanity in times of conflict, the reality is millions of families in Ukraine need food, medical care, clean water, and emergency services,” a message on the theatre screen read.
“Yet when you witness the strength and dignity of those facing such devastation, it’s impossible to not be moved by their resilience. One cannot help but be in awe of those who find the strength to keep fighting through unimaginable darkness.”
