Since the start of the crisis between Ukraine and Russia, Sean Penn has been one of Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine biggest,’s supporters.
The actor visited the nation that was the scene of the battle for the third time in recent hours, and this time he decided to carry a unique present along with him.
Before this, Penn made headlines when he publicly threatened to burn his Oscar trophy if Zelensky wasn’t invited to the 2022 Academy Awards event.
In reality, he has decided to give the President one of the two Oscars he won, promising to have it returned after the conflict.
It’s just a silly symbolic thing, but if I know this is here with you, I’ll feel better and stronger for the fights – Senn Penn said in a video shared by Zelensky’s office.
In a charitable gesture, two-time Oscar winner Sean Penn presented President Zelensky with one of his awards. Saying, “This is a ridiculous symbolic thing, but I know if this is here with you, I’ll feel better and stronger for the fights.”
Zelensky paid the actor back by awarding him by presenting the actor with the “Order of Merit of the III degree” for “strengthening relations, popularizing, and supporting the sovereignty of Ukraine.”
Penn has been a strong supporter of Zelensky’s unwavering bravery and tenacity. He constantly expressed his admiration for the president of Ukraine in public settings. When he appeared on Anderson Cooper’s CNN show, Penn voiced his respect for him and how he has kept the country united through such challenging times.
