The 70th ‘humanitarian convoy’ from Russia crossed the Ukrainian-Russian border and arrived in Donetsk. OSCE press service reported this on Friday morning.
The Russian emergency ministry sent to Donbas 12 trucks and five support vehicles, the message said.
The previous convoy crossed the Ukrainian border in September 2017.
Russia has been sending such convoys to the occupied Donbas since summer 2014. The Ukrainian government insists that ‘humanitarian convoys’ are merely a disguise for sending Kremlin-backed militants in Donbas weaponry, ammunition, and reinforcements; when the trucks come back, they presumably carry bodies of deceased militants and regular Russian troops. Neither Ukrainian border guards nor OSCE observers can examine the contents of trucks coming back and forth, as they cross the militant-held section of the state border.
