Milla Jovovich - Milla Jovovich Vows To Help The Helpless In The UKraine

Ukrainian-born model-turned-actress Milla Jovovich has spoken out about the civil strife in her homeland, insisting she is determined to help the helpless.

The beauty, who was born in Kiev where over 80 protesters have died following clashes with riot police, reveals she has been following the events that culminated in the collapse of President Viktor Yanukovych's government this weekend (21-22Feb14), and she wants to do what she can to raise funds to benefit hospitals and aid workers in the city.

In a post on her Facebook.com page, the Resident Evil star wrote, "I have no taste for politics, but I will do everything in my power to help the helpless, not the ones with guns.

"I have always put my money where my mouth is when it comes to helping people and you better believe I will find out what I can personally do for the victims of the violence in the Ukraine."

Jovovich says she has been following the Twitter.com postings of 21-year-old medical volunteer Olesya Zhukovska, who was reportedly shot in the neck by riot police on Thursday (20Feb14).

She hit the headlines after appearing in photographs clutching at her bleeding throat. She survived after being treated at a nearby hospital.

The actress added, "No matter what the reasons for the fighting, innocent people are being brutalized and that is undeniable and unacceptable... I am slowly researching and making my way through …to find the (charities) that I will personally donate to, as well as, great (web)sites that talk about what's really going on in the Ukraine right now."

On Friday (21Feb14), reports suggested Yanukovych had fled Kiev after the Ukraine parliamentary officials voted to impeach him. The former leader was prevented from leaving the country at a provincial airport in the eastern city of Donetsk on Saturday (22Feb14).
