Celine Dion has been speaking out against the war that has resulted in turmoil in Ukraine.

In an Instagram post this week, she discussed how devastating the war in Russia is. 

"It's so horrible what's going on in Ukraine and around the world with the refugee situation," she wrote. 

She has called on the world to help those affected. She has also joined the #StandUpForUkraine movement which was started by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"They desperately need our help now. Join us and @glblctzn as we #StandUpforUkraine to help these people who had to leave their homes and leave everything behind to go to a safe place," she wrote. 

"No one should have to experience this kind of tragedy," she added. 

This is not the first time Celine has showed her support to Ukrainians. 

Earlier in March, she wrote: "To the dear courageous people of Ukraine, we are shocked and saddened, and truly inspired by your bravery....Our hearts are with you. We send you love and prayers for peace."
