 Russian "Humanitarian Convoy" Will Be Blocked by All Means in Case of Breaking Through the Border - NSDC

The goods must still be examined by Ukrainian border guards and handed over to the Red Cross if decisions will be made to move humanitarian convoy through a section of the border temporarily controlled by the terrorists. But all the responsibility for the safety of the cargo will be laid on Russia, which controls the mercenaries also armed by the Russian Federation.

Representative of the NSDC information analytical centre Andrii Lysenko said this at a daily briefing on Thursday August 14, Censor.NET reports.

He noted that the Russian side was offered absolutely transparent conditions of joining the international humanitarian mission.

"Everything must go under the rules of the International Committee of the Red Cross. We see that the Russian side has been avoiding meeting the demands of this authoritative international organization for several days. Both representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross and international media put it bluntly," Lysenko said.

Responding to a clarifying question of what will be our response in case of an attempt of the convoy to break through into the territory of Ukraine bypassing these procedures, Lysenko said: "The convoy will be blocked in every possible way."
