“Dancing With The Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy shares emotional videos from Kyiv amid Russian invasion

“Dancing With The Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy shared a series of emotional videos on the situation unfolding in Ukraine, posting video clips from a balcony in Kyiv on Instagram and describing the scene in his home country.

Said Maksim in the first video clip: “I’m in Kyiv, contrary to what I probably should’ve done a while ago. Not that no one saw this coming, but everybody was hoping that the finality of this situation would be averted, that there wasn’t going to be these kind of aggressive measures.”

In a second video, an emotional Chmerkovskiy said: “You know me — I stay strong, and I don’t show it. But I want to go back home. And I realize that I have the way to — I realize that I have a different passport, and my family is far away.”  Maksim shared that he was “about to go into a bomb shelter because s**t’s going down,” before making a plea to Russia: “In 2022’s civilized world, this is not the way we do things. I think the Russians need to get up and actually say something, because no one’s opinion is being heard. This is all one man’s ambition of something, and however convenient it sounds in Moscow, however comfortable you are where you are in Russia, I just don’t think this is the right thing.”

Chmerkovskiy added: “I’m uneasy, I’m very scared … but I do know, at the very least, I have a chance. I have a passport and a way out. A lot of people here do not, and it’s f**king nonsense. I have [had] a f**king incredible pleasure to spend, on the ground, about six months now, and I’ve fell back in love — I never fell out of love, but I know now who these people are. I know who this country is, what it represents, what it stands for. And it’s completely not what is being portrayed to the Russian people in order to justify this invasion.”

Sean Penn in Ukraine filming documentary about Russian invasion

Filmmaker and actor Sean Penn is in Ukraine, as the country deals with a full-scale invasion of Russian military forces. The country’s presidential office said Thursday that Penn had arrived in the capital, Kyiv, to film a documentary about the conflict.

The Office of the President wrote in a Facebook post Thursday that Penn attended press briefings, met with Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk and spoke to journalists and military personnel about the Russian invasion. Photos have also surfaced of Penn meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The president’s office wrote on Facebook: “Sean Penn demonstrates the courage that many others, especially western politicians lack. The director specially came to Kiev to record all the events that are currently happening in Ukraine and to tell the world the truth about Russia’s invasion of our country.”

The 61-year-old actor is working on the project in collaboration with VICE Studios. Reports say that Penn flew to Kyiv earlier in the week and that he had previously traveled to Ukraine in November. During that trip, Penn also met with Russia-backed separatists.
