Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are doing their part to help those impacted by the current unrest in Ukraine. 

The Hollywood couple announced on Thursday that they’ve launched a GoFundMe page for victims of Russia’s invasion of the country and will match up to $3 million in donations. 

“While we are witnessing the bravery of Ukrainians, we are also bearing witness to the unimaginable burden of those who have chosen safety,” Kutcher, 44, captioned a video shared to Instagram.

“Through GoFundMe, this fundraiser will provide an immediate impact on refugee and humanitarian aid efforts.”

The “Two and a Half Men” alum sat beside his wife, 38, as she opened up about her Ukrainian roots. 

“I was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, in 1983. I came to America in 1991 and I have always considered myself an American. A proud American,” the actress said in the clip. “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 then chimed in to say, “And I have never been more proud to be married to a Ukranian.”

Elsewhere, Kunis called Russian President Putin’s attacks on Ukraine “devastating.” She added, “There is no place in this world for this kind of unjust attack on humanity.”

Kutcher and Kunis — who once co-starred on “That ’70s Show” and later wed in 2015 — have a goal to raise $30 million through their GoFundMe page, which will support refugee aid and more humanitarian efforts for displaced Ukrainians. 

The pair’s $3 million pledge will benefit AirBnB and Flexports, companies that are providing shelter to those who have found safety in such countries as Romania, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Moldova.

Kunis — who shares kids Wyatt, 7, and Dimitri, 5, with Kutcher — previously spoke about returning to Ukraine as an adult in a 2017 interview with Net-a-porter.com

“We went to our house and I knocked on the door because we really wanted to look inside. And [the new owner] was like, ‘No!’ She did not care. I said, ‘I used to live here when I was little, my parents are here [with me],’” she said at the time. “She wouldn’t even open the door. The whole experience was very humbling.”
