Video: Angelina Jolie Visits Ukraine With No Body Armor To Sign Autographs

Must be a rough war if celebrities can show up to a combat zone to take photo-ops and sign autographs without combat gear.

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie paid a visit to Ukraine for a photo-op without wearing combat gear, suggesting the war in Ukraine is not all it’s portrayed to be by the corporate media.

Jolie, who serves as an envoy for the United Nation’s Refugee Agency (UNHCR), was seen in a cafe in Lviv on Saturday waving at onlookers and signing autographs — notably without wearing body armor despite regular reports of shelling in the area.

“Ms Jolie was in the country to meet the children affected by the war and visited hospitals and local organisations helping the injured and displaced,” the BBC reported.

The 46-year-old actress is frequently deployed to war-torn areas to advocate for refugees displaced by conflict, such as her recent visit to Yemen.

But given the reporting of increased military shelling and engagements in the area, some on social media questioned the legitimacy of that reporting given Jolie’s casual visit.

Jolie is the second Hollywood celebrity to pay a visit to Ukraine after Sean Penn, who met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last month and called for nuclear retaliation against Russia.

“Even countries that have nuclear weapons can remain intimidated to use them, and we are seeing that now with our own country. And I fear what that legacy is going to be,” Penn opined on “Hannity” earlier this month.

At least Penn had the presence of mind to don combat gear while filming his documentary to appear as if his life was in danger.
