Sean Penn is concerned about what has been happening in Ukraine since the first day of the war. The actor and director support Ukrainian refugees and organize actions for financial assistance to Ukraine. Recently, Sean Penn held a charity event to raise funds for Ukraine. The charity event in Los Angeles raised more than $1 million. The director also calls on countries to help Ukraine with weapons.

Therefore, the director, for the second time since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia in Ukraine, comes to Kyiv. The visits are based on the gathering of information for a forthcoming documentary about the Russian-Ukrainian war.
On June 28, Sean Penn met with the president of Ukraine. Previously, the director visited Bucha and Irpin to collect materials. Laureate of the 2 Oscars, Penn can estimate the real scale of the damage and injuries Russians caused to Ukrainians.

Sean Penn visited Ukraine on 24 February, the first day of the war. Sean Penn also visited Lviv after the missile strikes.
