#Russia sent another illegal, uninspected convoy across the border into eastern #Ukraine on Monday, likely to resupply its forces.

Russia’s Ministry for Affairs for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters announced they have sent the 76th humanitarian convoy to Donbas.
According to the Ministry, 40 trucks had to deliver more than 400 tons of humanitarian supplies, including children’s grocery baskets, study books and medical equipment.
As it was reported earlier, moving of Russia’s humanitarian convoys is being conducted with a violation of the international law and conditions agreed with the ICRC. Therefore, the Ukrainian inter-ministerial team is carrying out only the visual monitoring without control functions. Armed Forces officers state that after Russia’s humanitarian convoy arrives, the militants become more active in Donbas.
