The documentary is being produced by Vice Studios in association with Vice World News and Endeavor Content.

Penn was said to have visited Ukraine in November 2021 for the first time to prepare the documentary, amid tensions between both neighboring countries.

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin had launched a military invasion of Ukraine.

Putin also warned global leaders against actions that will stop Russia’s operation in Ukraine.
