Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky had a video call with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher after the Hollywood couple raised more than $30 million in support of Ukrainian refugees.

Last week, Ukrainian-born Kunis, 38, and Kutcher, 44, announced in a video that their Stand with Ukraine campaign had reached its $30 million target. And it appears President Zelensky took the opportunity to thank the pair personally in a video call over the weekend.

In fact, the 44-year-old leader took to Twitter yesterday to share an image taken of the trio during the call.

He captioned the shot: "[Ashton Kutcher] & Mila Kunis were among the first to respond to our grief. They have already raised $35 million & are sending it to @flexport & @Airbnb to help [Ukrainian] refugees. Grateful for their support."

He concluded the post: "Impressed by their determination. They inspire the world. #StandWithUkraine."

President Volodymyr Zelensky also drew attention to the couple's efforts as part of his daily address on Monday morning (March 21).

Kunis and Ashton announce they've hit their $30 million target:

"A star couple who sincerely believe in us, in our victory, in our future," he said, per HuffPost. "They help Ukrainian IDPs by raising funds. And the two of them have already raised $35 million. I thanked them on behalf of our people, on behalf of all of us. Agree, this is a good result for one couple of our friends in America."

Kunis' family made the move to the United States from Ukraine in 1991 when the Black Swan actor was seven years old.

She was born in Chernivtsi in Western Ukraine and often speaks about her heritage.

In the description of her fundraiser, she wrote: "Ukrainians are proud and brave people who deserve our help in their time of need. This unjust attack on Ukraine and humanity at large is devastating and the Ukrainian people need our support. Our family is starting this fund to help provide immediate support and we will be matching up to $3 million dollars."
