Oscars hold moment of silence to show solidarity with Ukraine

Some of Hollywood’s biggest names have been showing their support for Ukraine on the red carpet at the Oscars, writes news.sky.com.

As the 94th Annual Academy Awards opened for business, following several years hampered by COVID restrictions, some actors took their moment in the spotlight to highlight the plight of those affected by the Russian invasion.

The conflict in Ukraine has been ongoing for more than a month as Russia continues its bombardment of its neighbour.

More than 1,000 civilians have been killed since President Vladimir Putin announced what he called a “special military operation” on 24 February.
