The invasion of Ukraine ordered by the Russian president Vladimir Putin has outraged the international community, many stars and famous brands taking a stance in this regard.
Among them is Leonardo DiCaprio, a Hollywood emblem, famous for his role in the movie "Titanic", which has transferred ten million US dollars to the Ukrainian government as the war continues.
