Celebrities show their true colors to the world during the war: which of the celebrities supported Ukraine

The leaders, writers, musicians, and athletes: the entire world is on the side of Ukraine.

What is the problem?

The war in Ukraine has been going on for three weeks. Every day goes for three. We rejoice in our victories and count the losses, we save ourselves and we save others, we help and accept help ourselves. We stand on our land and are not going to give it to anyone. But each of us wants to return to the ordinary world. Where there are vacations and concerts, movie premieres, and spectacular sports competitions. Where the media headlines cover news from prestigious literary competitions, music festivals, and fashion shows. All this will definitely come back into our lives. We just need to hold on and do everything possible for our Motherland to cope with the Russian invasion.

What is the solution?

The whole progressive world is now trying to help Ukraine. Help to win, to endure. Modern weapons, funds, and humanitarian goods are constantly flowing to Ukraine. A huge number of countries are ready to accept Ukrainians fleeing the war. We should not forget about information support – in wartime, it is no less important than material. It is impossible to list in one material all those who now speak loudly about Ukraine to the whole world. We talk about the most famous of them.

We need to donate money, we need to put pressure on our politicians to create here a safe haven for the victims. Everyone must do everything in their power. We need as many people as possible to provide voluntary asylum to Ukrainians, and I hope to take part in that as well," Cumberbatch said.

Британський співак Стінг

British singer Sting posted a video of the Russians song on his Instagram page. The composition was written during the Cold War. In particular, it speaks of the threat of a nuclear strike, and also has a line in which the author asks Russians "whether they love their children," hinting at the negative impact of the war on both sides. According to Sting, now the song is relevant again.

"I've rarely performed this song since it was written because I never thought it would be relevant again. But in light of one man's bloody and insidious decision to break into his peaceful neighbor, the song is again a call to humanity," Sting wrote under the post.

"For the brave Ukrainians who are fighting for their country against cruel tyranny, as well as for the Russians who are protesting against arrests and imprisonment. We, each of us, love our children. Stop the war," the artist wrote. He also announced the fundraiser under his video.

Тілль Ліндеманн

The vocalist of the famous German band Rammstein Till Lindemann helps Ukrainians who are fleeing the war at the train station in Berlin. This was reported on Instagram by Anna Komm from Kyiv, who left Ukraine for Berlin when Russian troops invaded our country.

According to the Ukrainian, she met the artist among the volunteers at the Berlin train station when she was trying to find temporary housing for the next flight. German volunteers told her that there were no places in the capital and that she could stay in a refugee tent. And when she was completely desperate, Till Lindemann helped her. The singer took her to the hotel, paid for a hotel room and gave her 50 euros for dinner.

By the way, earlier Lindemann canceled Rammstein's concerts in Russia. Imagine Dragons, Franz Ferdinand, Iggy Pop, The Killers, Green Day, BrainStorm, and many others also canceled their concerts. And members of the iconic British rock band Deep Purple have said they are apolitical but support Ukraine and return the 2011 autograph of former Prime Minister and President Dmitriy Medvedev.

And on March 14, Elon Musk challenged Putin to a duel: "I hereby challenge Владимир Путин [Vladimir Putin] to single combat. Stakes are Україна [Ukraine]," he wrote on Twitter. At first glance, it looks childish, but we all remember that Elon is a genius. Hopefully, the weapon that Musk will choose for the "fight" will be a big surprise for the Kremlin freak.

Oprah Winfrey also thinks of Ukraine: "I don't know about you, but I can't stop thinking about these senseless and dishonest attacks on Ukrainians. Because I'm surrounded by comfort and beauty, I can't help but think of the fear and exhaustion that each of those who escape, those who sleep underground, those who hide in basements, the faces of women and children, parents who say goodbye at the train station, men who have stood up for democracy. All this time it has touched my heart deeply. We see families being forced to leave their homes with only the essentials, or even empty-handed. Ignorance of what lies ahead shows us what really matters."

He added that he and his wife initiated a fundraiser through their charity fund. The money will be donated to UNICEF to help victims of the war in Ukraine. "Please join me in supporting UNICEF and add as much as you can. Thank you," Beckham said.
