Celebrities and political figures have been voicing support for Ukraine since Russia invaded this week.
Now comes another famous face with a personal connection to the besieged nation, actor Ashton Kutcher.
“I stand with Ukraine,” the star tweeted late Friday.

Kutcher’s wife, actress Mila Kunis, was born in Ukraine when it was part of the Soviet Union. Her family fled when she was a small child and settled in Los Angeles.
“Ultimately, I adjusted fairly quickly and fairly well, but it must have been hard because I blocked out second grade completely,” the “Black Swan” star told the Los Angeles Times in October 2008.
Kunis also appeared on TV’s “That ’70s Show,” which made Kutcher a star.
Oscar-winner Sean Penn is in Ukraine filming a documentary. He tweeted his praise for Ukrainians, calling them “historic symbols of courage and principle.”
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. (1/2)
