It is a radical decision. While he returned from Ukraine, Sean Penn would be ready to return to this country at war, but this time not to make a documentary. Indeed, the American actor said he was ready to take up arms to help the Ukrainian populations. “If you’ve been to Ukraine, fighting is bound to cross your mind. And you kind of think, ‘What century are we in?’ Because I was at the gas station in Brentwood the other day and I thought about taking up arms against Russia. But what’s going on? Hollywood Authentic media.
Quite staggering revelations for anyone wishing to fight Russian troops: “The only possible reason why I would have stayed longer in Ukraine the last time would have been that I was holding a rifle, probably without a bulletproof vest, because as as a foreigner, you would like to give this body armor to one of the civilian fighters who doesn’t have one or to a more capable fighter than me, or to a younger man or woman who could fight longer, etc”.
Sean Penn, very active in helping Ukrainian refugees
During this first trip, Sean Penn had taken his camera to make a documentary which should trace the first days of the Russian invasion in Ukraine. Indeed, he was alongside Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian president, when Vladimir Putin launched his attack from Moscow. In addition, the director wanted to come to the aid of Ukrainian refugees with his CORE foundation, which makes it possible to organize activities with children, to finance renovation work to accommodate these people forced to leave their homes to flee the war. .
