Angelina Jolie was filmed being moved to safety after an air raid siren sounded during her visit to war-torn Ukraine.

The Tomb Raider actress flew to the city of Lviv this weekend to meet with people who have been displaced since Russian forces launched their attack on the country in February.

During her visit to the shelter on Saturday, an air-raid siren was sounded at the station amid fears of an attack and Jolie, 46, was seen being led away by her aides and quickly bundled into a waiting car, presumably with destination to a bunker. .

As she was being filmed during the incident, Jolie kept her cool and waved to the camera before insisting, “I’m fine.”

The actress is a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency and met with volunteers working with the displaced, who shared the realities of their ordeal with the actress.

According to Reuters, they revealed that each of the psychiatrists on duty spoke to about 15 people a day, and that many of those at the station are children between the ages of two and 10.

Lviv regional governor Maksym Kozytsky said Jolie spoke to children who were receiving treatment for injuries sustained in the missile attack on the Kramatorsk train station in April.

In a social media post, Kozytsky wrote: ‘I was very moved by the (children’s) stories. One girl was even able to privately tell Ms. Jolie about a dream she had had.

He added that Jolie also visited a boarding school where she met students and took photos with them, and “promised she’d be back.”

Lviv is in western Ukraine, about 80 kilometers from the Polish border, and has faced shelling in recent weeks.
