Hollywood couple, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are donating the sum of $3million to the victims of the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The couple made the announcement in a video released via Kutcher's Instagram page on Thursday as the war enters the second week.

38-year-old Kunis was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine in 1983 but moved to the United States with her family in 1991.

She noted that she is "proud to be a Ukrainian" as Kutcher, 44, echoed that he has "never been more proud to be married to a Ukrainian."

In addition, the couple revealed that apart from the "$3 million worth of donations to Airbnb.org and Flexport.org," they will also make efforts to raise $30 million through GoFundMe.org to assist refugees.

"Through GoFundMe, this fundraiser will provide an immediate impact on refugee and humanitarian aid efforts. The fund will benefit Flexport.org and Airbnb.org, two organizations who are actively on the ground providing immediate help to those who need it most," the video caption read.

As of Thursday afternoon, Kunis and Kutcher's GoFundMe has raised over $2,600,000, People reported.

According to the United Nations, hundreds of civilians have been reported killed or injured, including children, while over a million Ukrainians have also fled since the invasion began on Feb. 24 — the first major land conflict in Europe in decades.
