"The convoy is ready to go. It counts over 100 trucks, which will deliver to Donbas over 1,200 tons of humanitarian aid. Over 40 vehicles arrived at Donetsk checkpoint, another 60 - at Matveyev Kurgan checkpoint in the Rostov region, where customs clearance has started", Voronov said.
According to the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland, Russia sends military supplies for the militants in eastern Ukraine under the guise of humanitarian aid.
From Aug. 23 to Nov. 16, seven such convoys crossed Ukrainian border. According to the Russian side, they delivered the so-called humanitarian aid to the Donbas. Earlier six so-called humanitarian convoys crossed Ukrainian border illegally without obtaining permission from Ukraine. The Ukrainian side did not coordinate their movements as well.
The Red Cross also has no relation to the latest convoy. Since Ukrainian border guards were not allowed to the clearance, it remains unknown what the so-called humanitarian aid convoy carries.
