Mila Kunis (born August 14, 1983) is an American actress. In 1991, at the age of seven, she and her Jewish family fled from Soviet Ukraine to the United States.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Donate $3 Million to Ukraine
In 1991, Mila Kunis fled Ukraine. The actress was born in Chernivtsi, a city in southwestern Ukraine, and was just 7 years old when her Jewish family left what was then the Soviet Union. The Kunis family came to the U.S. on a religious refugee visa; as Mila told Glamour in 2017, “My parents went through hell and back. They came to America with suitcases and a family of seven and $250, and that’s it.”
She started acting classes to learn English, and seven years after she arrived in America, she landed her breakout role in That 70s Show.
Three decades after she and her family left their homeland as refugees, Kunis is teaming up with her husband, Ashton Kutcher, to help those fleeing from the current conflict in her native Ukraine. The United Nations estimates one million refugees have fled Ukraine in just one week.
In a video posted to Kutcher’s Instagram, Kunis shares, “I came to America in 1991 and I have always considered myself an American. A proud American. I love everything that this country has done for myself and my family. But today, I have never been more proud to be a Ukrainian.” Kutcher adds, “and I’ve never been more proud to be married to a Ukrainian.”
“The events that have unfolded in Ukraine are devastating. There is no place in this world for this kind of unjust attack on humanity,” Kunis continued, with Kutcher chiming in to say, “and while we witness the bravery of the people of the country she was born in, we are also witnessing to the needs of those who have chosen safety.”
The couple’s fundraiser will “provide an immediate impact on refugee and humanitarian aid efforts,” benefitting Flexport and Airbnb, two organizations on the ground providing immediate help. Kutcher and Kunis are matching up to $3 million, in an effort to raise $30 million. Their fundraiser is on GoFundMe.
