Russian forces have gathered in the east of the country for a renewed assault. Footage shows Jolie signing autographs for her fans in Ukraine. In some other moments of Jolie, she is seen surrounded by a large number of people. It is being said that these visuals are from outside Lviv railway station.

Jolie is not the first Hollywood celebrity to land in Ukraine during the conflict with Russia. American actor Sean Penn filmed a VICE documentary during the early days of the war. When Kyiv was under assault, Penn and his team walked miles to the Polish border. The actor, 61, said both he and his film crew decided to abandon their car and pursue on foot after seeing the thousands of Ukrainian residents fleeing for safety, with queues stretching for miles.
