 Urgent Putin's "humanitarian convoy" crossed Ukrainian border illegally

The convoy of over 20 vehicles crossed the border and is moving towards Donetsk city.

The Russian Emergencies Ministry informed about it, Censor.NET reports referring to TASS.

Another Russian convoy with 'humanitarian aid' for the families of miners killed in a methane blast at the Zasiadko mine, as well as for 'DPR' residents, has crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border.

"The customs clearance procedures are over at Matveyev Kurgan and Donetsk checkpoints in the Rostov region. All the trucks passed the customs and border control and crossed the state border. This is an extraordinary convoy formed urgently upon an order from the Russian president to provide assistance to families of killed and injured miners," the ministry representative said.

This is the 18th Russian "humanitarian convoy" since August 2014 delivered to the Donbas without authorization.

Since Ukrainian border guards were not allowed to the clearance, it remains unknown what the so-called humanitarian aid convoy carries. According to the NSDC, these trucks import ammunition and weapons to the terrorists-controlled territory.
