Sean Penn is in Ukraine

Hi, this is Leslie Harris, and I’m always amazed by the courage of not just soldiers, but also our foreign correspondents who travel to tell the stories from inside war zones.

Actor/filmmaker Sean Penn is actually in Ukraine, making a documentary. Ukraine’s office of the President said that Sean Penn is in Kiev to “tell the world the truth about Russia’s invasion of our country” according to a translated Facebook post. “Our country is grateful to him for such a show of courage and honesty.”

Penn’s been attending press conferences, and meeting with President Zelensky. Penn was also in Ukraine back in November, when he visited with Ukrainian military.

President Zelensky also said, “the more such people in our country now, true friends of Ukraine, who support the struggle for freedom, the sooner it will be possible to stop Russia’s treacherous attack.”
