The convoy is to depart on June 15.

Since August 2014, Russia has been sending the so-called "humanitarian" convoys to the hostility zone in Ukraine's east. Ukrainian border guards and customs officers are not allowed to inspect the cargo.

The Ukrainian authorities insist that they have proof that such trucks transport weapons and ammunition along with goods for civilians.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly demanded that Russia stop violating Ukraine's sovereignty by sending the so-called "humanitarian" aid.
