Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have announced they are ready to match donations of up to $3 million (£2.25 million) to provide humanitarian aid to Ukrainian refugees.

The Hollywood stars are the latest power couple to pledge their generous financial support to those caught up in the “devastating” conflict.

Mila, 37, was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, and said in a video appeal there was “no place in this world for this kind of unjust attacks on humanity”.

She said: “I’ve always considered myself an American, a proud American. I love everything this country has done for me and my family.

“But today I’ve never been so proud to be a Ukrainian.

“The events that have taken place in Ukraine are devastating. There is no place in this world for this kind of unjust attack on humanity.”

Her husband and former co-star on the ’70s show Ashton, 44, said: “While we see the bravery of people in the country where she was born, we are also witnessing the needs of those who have chosen safety . ”

The Two And A Half Men star added that the “logistics” are the biggest challenge getting homes and supplies into the area.

And the pair have announced they will match all donations to rental company AirBnB and freight transporter Flexport, up to a total of US$3 million (£2,250,000).

The company aims to raise $30 million (£22.5 million).

Mila added: “People in Ukraine are strong and brave, but being strong and brave doesn’t mean you don’t deserve support.

“We have to support the people of Ukraine.”

Within just three hours of publication, the site had raised over $2.5 million after receiving a large offline donation attributed to the Ron Conway family.

In addition to Mila and Ashton, other celebrity couples have also pledged financial support.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have previously pledged to match donations of up to $1 million (£750,000) to support the growing number of Ukrainian refugees.

The couple also called on the public to donate to the humanitarian charity US For UNHCR to help the thousands of citizens displaced by the conflict and said they would match the support shown.

Russia’s invasion continued to unsettle the world as the country targeted Ukraine’s nuclear power plants on Thursday night.

When news of the attacks broke, Piers Morgan took to Twitter to share further concerns about the situation.

He quoted a tweet about the attack and commented: “My god… what’s Putin doing? That’s crazy.”

In a speech Thursday night, Putin said military operations were going according to plan before accusing Ukraine of using its citizens and foreign students as human shields.
