Russia sent another so-called “humanitarian convoy” to Donbas territory occupied by the pro-Russian militants. This was reported by the press service of Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russian Federation.
"The cars carry more than 400 tons of goods, including children's food kits," the Russian ministry said.
It is noted that on the border with Ukraine the column will be divided: some trucks will go to Luhansk region, part - to Donetsk.
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.
