At the presentation of the western in Chernivtsi, Viggo Mortensen, who has been supporting Ukraine and helping Ukrainians abroad since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, said that it is important for him to have a conscious position. "I did not do anything unusual, I was just not indifferent. It is a great honor for me to hear the words of gratitude from Ukrainians and to be at this festival," said the famous actor in Chernivtsi.

Mortensen also emphasized that when he was invited to come to Ukraine for Mykolaychuk OPEN, he immediately agreed, even though his family was concerned about his decision. "Only my family knew. My girlfriend was worried, but I assured her that everything would be fine. When I send her photos from here, I think she will finally calm down," the star actor emphasized.
