Ben Stiller Meets Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky-‘It Was An Honour’
World Refugee Day is an annual event that is held by the United Nations and designed to celebrate and honour refugees around the world. And in keeping with that, Stiller arrived in Kiyv as part of his role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees on Monday, 20th June 2022.
In the picture here, we can see that the pair are talking in the presidential office over the state of affairs in the country. The post was captioned by the following comments: “It was an honour to meet President @ZelenskyyUa…to stand in solidarity with people forced to flee in Ukraine and worldwide.”
“To stand in solidarity with people forced to flee in Ukraine and worldwide, and bring more attention to the humanitarian situation.” This visit arrived on the back end of Stiller having visited Poland in order to see how volunteers were coming together to provide assistance to those that were in need.
In another image here, we can see Ben talking in the presence of two volunteers as the supply boxes are visible in the background. And given that Ben has had the opportunity to see what has been happening first hand, he could not help but marvel at how he felt the Ukrainian President was handling things.
So much so that he reportedly went on to refer to Zelenskyy as “my hero.” Despite Ben’s efforts, the response on social media was mixed. This was primarily on the basis that the United States was having its own issues, which did not get as much attention. One person wrote: “Now do homeless camps in the US.”
Regardless of what you think about Ben, as soon as this conflict comes to an end, then the better it is for everybody involved. And that can only be a good thing going forward. So there you have it folks. What did you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
