"They Inspire the World" - Zelensky Spoke With Ashton Kutcher And Mila Kunis

Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, had a video call with actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher to thank them for raising roughly $35 million for Ukrainian refugees.

Zelensky noted on Sunday night in a message posted on Twitter that the two famous Hollywood actors, who have raised a huge amount of money in a short period of time for Ukraine, are inspiring the world.

The President of Ukraine said he was impressed with their determination.

"Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were among the first to respond to our grief. They have already raised $35 million & are sending it to @flexport & @ Airbnb to help [Ukrainian flag] refugees. Grateful for their support. Impressed by their determination. They inspire the world," wrote Zelensky.

Zelensky also said in a Monday statement that Ashton and Mila are a "star couple who sincerely believe in us, in our victory, in our future."

"They help IDPs [internally displaced refugees] by raising funds. And the two of them have already raised [close to] $35 million," he said.

"I thanked them on behalf of our people, on behalf of all of us. This is a good result for one couple of our friends in America," Zelensky said to the world.

"We are working to make the whole world our friends", he added.
 
Mila Kunis Was Born In Ukraine

Ashton Kutcher, 44, and Mila Kunis, 38, who was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, launched a GoFundMe on March 3 to fund San Francisco-based companies Flexport and Airbnb. Flexport is a freight transportation company bringing supplies to refugees across Europe and Airbnb is providing them with free, short-term housing.

Kutcher retweeted a message from Zelensky on Sunday, which featured a photo of an open laptop with the couple and Zelensky, 44, having a chat. Kunis also tweeted the photo as well but added no caption.

On Thursday, the couple revealed on Instagram that they hit their $30million fundraising goal to benefit Ukrainian refugees just two weeks into launching the program.

"We just want to say that we hit our goal," Mila Kunis said in a clip before Kutcher added: "Over $30million dollars raised".

"Over 65,000 of you donated. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the support and while this is far from solving the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing to so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty," Mila Kunis said.
