Ukraine’s President Zelensky has met with Hollywood Actor Ben Stiller in Kyiv, with the pair saying it was an honour to meet

Actor Ben Stiller has witnessed the devastation caused in Ukraine, as the actor visited Kyiv to meet with President Zelensky and senior officials.

The visit was part of Stiller’s role as an ambassador for the U.N. refugee agency. He says Zelensky is a “hero”, as the nation enters its fifth month of conflict.

“It’s one thing to see this destruction on TV or on social networks. Another thing is to see it all with your own eyes. That’s a lot more shocking,”

It comes as Ukraine’s President says his nation is moving along the path to becoming part of the European Union.

“What you saw in Irpin is definitely dreadful. But it is even worse to just imagine what is happening in the settlements that are still under temporary occupation in the east,” President Zelensky says.

The President says Ukraine should expect “greater hostile activity” from Russia as the E.U. considers whether the country should be formally considered this week.

Leaders of the 27 member body are meeting this week to discuss the process.

Zelensky says Ukraine deserves candidacy and is already proving the war-torn nation is already a part of the E.U.

Stiller also visited Poland, where he met with a woman who fled the city of Kharkiv with her children.

“The only thing that will guarantee Marina sees her loved ones again is peace,” Stiller says.

Amnesty International says war crimes have taken place in Kharkiv, where hundreds of people have reportedly been killed at the hands of Russian forces.
