Oscars 2022: From Diane Warren to Jamie Lee Curtis, Celebs Wear Blue Ribbon to Show Solidarity With Ukraine
Several celebs like Jaime Lee Curtis, Diane Warren, and Yuh-Jung Youn, wore blue ribbons to support Ukraine refugees at the 94th Academy Awards
Oscars 2022: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences observed a moment of silence to recognise the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Through slides with a message of support, the organisers expressed their support for the people of Ukraine. Mila Kunis, a Ukrainian-born actress, was the other official acknowledger of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
The message on the slides read, “We’d like to observe a moment of silence in honour of the people of Ukraine, who are today confronting invasion, strife, and intolerance within their own borders. While the film provides an important platform for us to show our humanity during times of conflict, the fact is that millions of Ukrainian families require food, medical care, clean water, and emergency services. Resources are limited, but ‘as a global community,’ we can do more. We ask that you help Ukraine in any manner you can.. #StandwithUkraine.”

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began on February 24, when it launched a barrage of missiles and aircraft against Ukrainian cities, including Kiev, the capital. Over 3.6 million Ukrainians have been forced to evacuate their nation as a result of Russia’s invasion, which has triggered the greatest European refugee crisis since World War II. At least 3,000 civilians have died as a result of the invasion, according to Ukraine.
