    The Hollywood star paid a visit to several cities in the Donbass region of Ukraine as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador meeting children and trying local Ukrainian food.

    Orlando Bloom visited schools where he was photographed with students and signed autographs in the Kiev-controlled part of Donbass, where he met with children who had fallen victim to the Ukrainian conflict.

    The star of Pirates of the Caribbean, who is also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, ate lunch at a local café in Kramatorsk. In the town of Slavyansk he paid a visit to a school.

    According to a Ukrainian TV channel, there was a big buzz in school №13 in Slavyansk because of the arrival of the Hollywood actor.

    “UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Orlando Bloom is in Ukraine and has met with children affected by the conflict. In connection with security issues details of his visit with UNICEF were not disclosed,” the statement was published by the information department of UNICEF Ukraine.

    The government of Ukraine in April 2014 launched a military operation against the self-proclaimed LNR and DNR, who declared independence after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN figures, more than nine thousand people have fallen victim to the conflict.

    The resolution of the situation in Donbass is under discussion following the Minsk agreement. Since September 2014, three documents regarding the steps to de-escalate the conflict, including a truce have been accepted.

    However, even after the armistice agreements between the conflicting parties were accepted, skirmishes have continued.
