“In one of the medical institutions, she visited children who had suffered a missile strike by the Russian army at the Kramatorsk train station. I was very moved by their stories. Even one of the girls was able to privately tell Mrs. Jolie about her dream,” Kozytskyy said.
Jolie also visited a boarding school in Lviv, which became an access point for displaced people, humanitarian aid and weapons. Kozetsky said she told the kids she was coming back.
At the main railway station in Lviv, where Ukrainian residents regularly arrive, I spoke to volunteers who provide medical and psychological assistance.
“I thanked them for their work,” Kozetsky said. I’ve spoken to people who have managed to leave the actual combat zones.”
Jolie is a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency, but Jung Ah Gidney Williams, UNHCR’s head of global communications, said Jolie had traveled to the region in her personal capacity and that UNHCR was not participating in the visit.
Earlier on Saturday, Jolie was photographed visiting a cafe in Lviv. CNN has reached out to Jolie’s representatives for comment.
