He also stressed that Ukraine admits that the convoy, which is already moving towards our border, must arrive to the border.

"These goods are to be loaded into vehicles which the Red Cross leases. Thus we will not allow the Russian Interior Ministry or other security agency servicemen to escort the convoy in Ukraine," he said.

"Everything will be under the control of the Ukrainian side. We will take the responsibility for the delivery of humanitarian aid," he added.

Chalyi said that any unauthorized entry into the territory of Ukraine will be regarded to as an act of aggression.
