Ukraine inspecting Russian humanitarian aid convoy

PanARMENIAN.Net - Ukraine said Friday, Aug 15, its border guards are inspecting a Russian aid convoy parked at the frontier, BBC News reports.

Ukrainian officials reportedly said the cargo, bound for cities in eastern Ukraine held by pro-Russian militias, was being checked.

Ukraine fears the convoy may carry military supplies, an accusation Russia has rejected.

On Thursday, two reporters said they saw Russian army vehicles heading into Ukraine. Ukrainian security officials also said that they had spotted “a column of armored personnel carriers and military lorries crossing into Ukraine.”

The conflict, which has claimed more than 2,000 lives, has intensified in recent weeks. On Thursday, there was heavy shelling in the rebel stronghold cities of Donetsk and Luhansk.
