Lviv had been largely spared the war but recorded its first civilian deaths in mid-April after Russian strikes.

It is the hub through which tens of thousands of people have fled to neighboring Poland after withstanding weeks of strikes in cities like kyiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol.

Oscar-winning actress Jolie served as a goodwill ambassador for the UN refugee agency from 2001 to 2012 before being named a special envoy.

According to the UN, the 46-year-old’s work focuses on “major crises that cause mass displacement of people” and she has helped “contribute to the vital process of finding solutions for people forced to flee their homes. “.
