Mr Stiller arrived in Kyiv after visiting the ruins of Irpin. “I’ve been this morning in Irpin. I mean the level of destruction, I mean, you see it on TV, you see that on social media and, you know, it’s something else to actually see it and feel it and then to talk to the people,” he said during a conversation with the Ukrainian head of state.

It was an honour to meet President @ZelenskyyUa on #WorldRefugeeDay as part of my visit with UNHCR @Refugees to stand in solidarity with people forced to flee in Ukraine and worldwide, and bring more attention to the humanitarian situation. @Refugees #WithRefugees

Thanks @USAmbKyiv for taking the time to meet to discuss humanitarian needs for the over 12 million displaced people as a result of the war.

And much respect for you and your team re opening our U.S Embassy in Kyiv at a very trying time. @Refugees
