When Ben Stiller visited Poland and Ukraine and met people affected by the war with Russia, he said, “It is right to seek security and we need to support it for everyone. “.
An American actor, 56, arrived in Poland on Saturday and was filmed talking to help workers in a storage facility in the southeastern metropolis of Rzeszow near the border.
Stiller, a long-term goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), has since visited Ukraine on World Refugee Day.
In a video posted to his Instagram account, Stiller said: I meet people affected by the war and hear how the war changed their lives.
“War and violence are devastating people all over the world. No one chooses to flee their homes.
“Ask for safety is the right thing to do, and it needs to be endorsed by everyone.”
Since the outbreak of the war in February, millions of Ukrainians have fled to Poland.
On June 18, Stiller met a Ukrainian refugee marina who fled the city of Kharkiv with her three children two months ago.
He started working at UNHCR in 2016 and has traveled to meet refugees in Germany, Jordan, Guatemala and Lebanon.
In a statement commemorating World Refugee Day, Zulander and Night at the Museum actors said:
“People shared stories about how the war changed their lives, lost everything, and were deeply worried about their future.
“For years, I have had the opportunity to meet refugees and seekers from around the world from Syria, Central America, Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Ukraine.
“In so many parts of the world, war and violence have devastated people and left a lasting traumatic effect. Whenever and wherever it happens, no one chooses to flee their homes. ..
“Ask for safety is the right thing to do, and it needs to be endorsed by everyone.
“It is a collective global responsibility to protect those who are forced to flee. It must be remembered that this can happen to anyone, anywhere.”
