 Russian Military Pushed Ukrainian Border Guards Away from Putin's Сonvoy - Tymchuk

Following a statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry that the column with the "humanitarian aid" from Russia will enter the territory of Ukraine without the permission of the Ukrainian side, the trucks from this column began to move, crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border.

This is reported by Dmytro Tymchuk on his Facebook page, Censor.NET reports.

"I am talking about 34 trucks from the column, which were previously checked by the Ukrainian border guards and customs. However, they needed the permission of the Ukrainian side, after the Red Cross provided their escort for entry into the territory of Ukraine," he said.

"Thus, Moscow openly continues its provocation called "humanitarian aid" for Donbas people". Entrance of the Russian columns into the territory of Ukraine without the permission of the Ukrainian authorities and escort of the cargo by representatives of international organizations is a gross violation by Russia of all conceivable norms of international law regarding sovereignty and territorial integrity of the state," Tymchuk wrote and added that all truck drivers are Russian citizens, and all have Russian old type passports for travelling abroad.
