The actress took to Instagram and pleaded on behalf of UNICEF to help Ukraine, calling the situation “terrifying”.

She also shared news coverage of Ukrainian subways transformed into underground bunkers by civilians so that they can stay safe during the conflict.

In the post, Priyanka wrote: “The situation unfolding in Ukraine is terrifying.

“Innocent people living in fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones, while trying to navigate the uncertainty of the immediate future.

“It’s difficult to comprehend how in the modern world this could escalate to such a catastrophic point, but this is a consequential moment that will reverberate around the world.”

Asking people to help Ukrainian civilians, Priyanka continued:

“There are innocent lives living in this warzone. They are just like you and me.

He had tweeted: “There are 18,000 Indian students and many families who are struck in Ukraine, I am sure Government must be trying their best to get them back.

“I urge Indian Embassy to find an alternate route for their evacuation.”

“Praying for their safety. #IndiansInUkraine.”

Tillotama Shome said: “I worry incessantly for my mother who is battling cancer in the midst of covid.

“But when I think of the families and cancer patients in the middle of war, my brain just ceases to comprehend.

“Nothing absolutely nothing is uglier than war. Mothers don’t give life for war.”

Richa Chadha also reacted to the ongoing conflict, writing:

“Every annexation/withdrawal of troops that push a country back into the Dark Ages/new data privacy rules, everything that’ll happen now will happen to ‘further democracy’ and in ‘national interest’.

“If people don’t fight for freedom, we’ll be glorified serfs again.”
