Milla Jovovich, actress and model born in Kiev, Ukraine, has offered to help those affected by the violent protests in her home country. The “Resident Evil” star was born to a Serbian pediatrician father and a Russian actress mother in the city that has been a hotspot for anti-government protests resulting in a takeover of the capitol by protesters after the collapse of President Viktor Yanukovych’s control over the weekend.

“I have no taste for politics, but I will do everything in my power to help the helpless, not the ones with guns,” Milla posted on her Facebook page. She continued on to say, “I have always put my money where my mouth is when it comes to helping people and you better believe I will find out what I can personally do for the victims of the violence in the Ukraine.”

Jovovich’s message was posted the day after the worst day of violence Kiev has experienced since World War II where 88 people died when government security forces used live ammunition and snipers to attempt to quell protests. “No matter what the reasons for the fighting, innocent people are being brutalized and that is undeniable and unacceptable,” said Jovovich.

Both George Clooney and Arnold Schwarzenegger are lending their voices and support to this pressing issue, but Jovovich is planning on lending more than her voice to this cause close to her heart. She says, “I am slowly researching and making my way through …to find the [charitable websites] that I will personally donate to, as well as, great sites that talk about what’s really going on in the Ukraine right now.”

Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the violence in Ukraine.
