Sean Penn was among the thousands (or maybe even millions) leaving Ukraine and heading to the Polish border.
The actor arrived in Kyiv last week to film a documentary for VICE about the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. On Feb. 28, he posted a photo in which he dragged luggage along the side of the road as he headed toward Poland. The image showed a caravan of cars, which appeared to be at a standstill.
"Myself & two colleagues walked miles to the Polish border after abandoning our car on the side of the road," he wrote. "Almost all the cars in this photo carry women & children only, most without any sign of luggage, and a car their only possession of value."
Over the weekend, the two-time Oscar winning actor spoke about the Kremlin's invasion of neighboring Ukraine and condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"Already a brutal mistake of lives taken and hearts broken, and if he doesn't relent, I believe Mr. Putin will have made a most horrible mistake for all of humankind. President Zelensky and the Ukrainian people have risen as historic symbols of courage and principle," Sean tweeted, referring to the Ukrainian President. "Ukraine is the tip of the spear for the democratic embrace of dreams. If we allow it to fight alone, our soul as America is lost."
