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 child and settled in Los Angeles.
“Eventually, I settled in pretty quickly and pretty well, but it must have been hard because I completely blocked out second grade,” the “Black Swan” star told the Los Angeles Times in October 2008.
Kunis also appeared on the television show “That ’70s Show,” which made Kutcher a celebrity.
Oscar winner Sean Penn is in the Ukraine filming a documentary. He tweeted his praise for Ukrainians, calling them “historical symbols of courage and principle.”
“Dancing with the Stars” alum Maksim Chmerkovskiy shared a video of himself in his homeland on his verified Instagram account on Thursday.
“There is ALWAYS another way! WAR is NEVER an answer!” Chmerkovskiy wrote from Kyiv.
