Russian aid convoy 'heading into Ukraine'

Russian aid convoy 'heading into Ukraine'
Text size Aa Aa

The first trucks from a Russian aid convoy stuck for almost a week at the border with Ukraine have reportedly passed a checkpoint on their way to deliver what Moscow says are humanitarian supplies to civilians.

The International Committee of the Red Cross is supervising the operation.

Ukraine fears the convoy of over 260 trucks could be used as a ‘Trojan Horse’ to supply military equipment to pro-Russian separatist rebels – something Moscow denies.
