A new convoy of Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry has arrived in Donbas, having brought what Russia claims is "humanitarian" aid.
"The trucks of the 94th humanitarian convoy of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry crossed Russia's Donetsk and Matveyev Kurgan checkpoints on the Russian-Ukrainian border from 04:50 to 05:40 a.m. local time on December 5. The 94th 'humanitarian convoy' consisted of 25 trucks," the press service of the Ukrainian Border Guard Service said.
The convoy, as was the case with the previous ones, was moving with gross violation of international and Ukrainian legislation and the modalities agreed with the International Committee of the Red Cross. The Ukrainian interagency group carried out only visual observation without performing control functions.
The trucks allegedly transported baby food. However, given the fact that the cargo was in sealed packaging, the Ukrainian border guards and customs officers could not examine the contents.
The trucks were loaded by about 70%, the report says.
