Russia sent another so-called "humanitarian convoy" to the Donbas territory occupied by the pro-Russian militants. This was reported by the press service of the Emergency Ministry of Russia.  

"The humanitarian column of the Russian Emergency Ministry reached the "Donetsk" and "Matveev Kurgan" checkpoints on the Russia-Ukraine border. Now all the vehicles of the column undergo the necessary customs procedures," the report said.

The trunks carry more than 430 tons of cargo, among which "mainly children's food sets and medical equipment."

The previous column of Russian trucks arrived in the Donbas on 25 January. The cars carried more than 400 tons of goods, including children's food kits," as the Russian ministry calimed.

As it was reported earlier Russian authorities have been sending the so-called humanitarian convoys to Ukraine since August 2014. The Russian side claims the trucks carry food, water, medicines, books, agrarian instruments and other necessities. Ukrainian border guards cannot check the contents of trucks, and Russia refused to send their humanitarian aid through the controlled checkpoints on the border, as requested by Ukraine. Ukraine insists there are weapons and ammunition aboard the trucks, so they reach Kremlin-backed militants that keep on attacking Ukrainian positions.
