Penelope Cruz angered Ukrainians

Spanish actress and model Penelope Cruz made a splash with her call to help African children who are starving "because of the war in Ukraine." Together with UNICEF, the star lamented the lack of food in Africa, but for some reason forgot to mention who caused a full-scale war in Ukraine and innocent people to die.

Ukrainians decided to remind her of this in an Instagram post, but the actress later restricted the ability to leave messages. Then dissatisfied Internet users expressed their opinion on Twitter (to see photos and videos, scroll to the bottom of the page).

"The war in Ukraine continues to cause suffering to thousands of children and their families. In addition, it affects the price of food, and the endless drought puts thousands of families in countries such as Somalia, Ethiopia, and South Sudan at risk. It is with great sadness that I look at the photos of children suffering from acute malnutrition," Cruz declared.

Having diluted the video with compassionate footage from Africa, the actress decided not to explain to her fans that Ukraine has been suffering from a full-scale Russian invasion for more than 8 months. Ukrainian children who have been left without a home, light, and heat are also probably not of concern to the Spaniard.

Angry Ukrainians reminded her in the comments that during such socially important speeches, it is necessary to clearly indicate who is to blame for the hunger of African children.

"It's all because of Russia. Call it what it is," "And who started this war? Why don't you say that Russia is to blame for this famine?" "Sorry, but the problem with grain is not because of the war in Ukraine, but because Russia invaded Ukraine!" read the messages below the video.

On Twitter, users spoke more harshly, as they were offended by the actress's indifference to the genocide of Ukrainians.

"Penelope Cruz is a good actress, but as a human being she is a common abomination," "Penelope Cruz is a nobody. I have never had even a little sympathy for her, so there is no disappointment. Just a recognition of the fact that she's a stupid idiot," "At times like this, I want to wish the Russians and Iranians missiles on their homes," the posts read.
