“The column split up into two: one of them reached the border crossing "Donetsk", and will lead to Luhansk afterward. The second arrived at the "Matviiv Kurhan" checkpoint and then continue to move in Donetsk direction,” states TASS with the reference to Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations.
More than 100 trucks went to Donetsk and Luhansk regions carrying more than 1.000 tons of so-called “humanitarian aid”. As state Russian authorities, the trucks bring food, medicines and other essential products. It is the 35th convoy, which came from Russia for the last year of anti-terroristic operation in Donbas. In total, Russia has delivered near 42 tons of some food, clothes, medicines etc. As was reported a week ago, this time Russian officials report to send textbooks and other educational materials as a part of humanitarian aid.
Ukrainian government and intelligence services say that under the guise of "humanitarian aid" Russia delivers combustive-lubricating materials, new military equipment, weapons, munitions, flags of Donetsk People's Republic, and takes back the bodies of the dead militants and unique industrial equipment grabbed from the Ukrainian territories.
