Penn has already spent several days in Kyiv. On Monday, he recorded an interview with Leonid Ostaltsev, veteran business owner. Ostaltsev opened a pizzeria after he returned from the war and thought about how to live on. He knew how to make pizza, so got down to this business. Now it is not just a successful restaurant, but a whole direction: several veteran institutions work within one franchise. "Now I have a new friend," Ostaltsev wrote on Instagram after talking to Sean Penn.
