Angelina Jolie bundled to air raid bunker as sirens go off during Ukraine visit

THIS is the moment Hollywood star Angelina Jolie was bundled to the safety of a bunker as sirens rang out in war-torn Ukraine.

In defiance of Vladimir Putin’s threats to unleash World War Three, the film favourite visited Lviv – where seven people were killed in a horror missile strike last week.

Jolie is the biggest Hollywood star to step foot inside the bomb-blitzed country in the latest sign of the world’s support.

She met refugees who had fled devastated Donbas where Russian troops launched an all-out assault after their defeat at Kyiv.

The UN goodwill ambassador was also spotted in a coffee shop in Lviv in western Ukraine.

And footage has emerged of the star and her entourage being briskly escorted to safety as sirens blared out across the city.

Jolie can be heard insisting “I’m okay” as she waved to the camera.

Her visit to Ukraine will likely enrage the Kremlin after Putin’s right-hand man complained that Western aid to Kyiv amounted to a “proxy war” that could trigger nuclear Armageddon.

She travelled independently with her pal Baroness Arminka Helić – who campaigns against rape as a weapon of war. She was not on an official UN mission.

Dressed in a plain grey tracksuit she signed autographs for locals who thanked her for standing with them in their country’s darkest hour.

Footage of her coffee shop visit sparked jokes across Ukraine – as it showed a youngster at the next door table engrossed in his mobile phone who did not realise she was there.

Eyewitness Maya Pidhoretska wrote on Facebook: “Nothing special. Just Lviv. I just went to have coffee. Just Angelina Jolie.”

Later she went to Lviv’s railway station to meet families fleeing Pokrovsk, a city in eastern Donetsk which has been blitzed by Russian strikes.

Lviv’s railway lines were hit with a deadly cruise missile strike on April 18.

During the visit to the station, Jolie met volunteers working with the displaced, who told her that each of the psychiatrists on duty spoke to about 15 people a day.

Many of those in the station are children aged from two to ten, according to volunteers.

“They must be in shock … I know how trauma affects children, I know just having somebody show how much they matter, how much their voices matter, I know how healing that is for them,” she said in reply.

Jolie also visited an orphanage, a rehabilitation centre and aid distribution point.

The 46-year-old is a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency, which says more than 12.7 million people have fled their homes in the past two months – which represents around 30 per cent of Ukraine’s pre-war population.
