Ukraine ready to accept Russia’s humanitarian aid

The Russian Foreign Ministry has received a note from the Ukrainian government expressing its readiness to accept the Russian humanitarian aid. The news came as Moscow agreed on the Ukrainian presence in the humanitarian convoy.

The humanitarian aid road map has been completely agreed on, with all Kiev’s wishes taken into account, including the route, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a press-conference in Sochi.

“We have agreed on a route convenient for the Kiev authorities. We agreed that our trucks would have Ukrainian number plates during their way through the Ukrainian territory. We also agreed to take on board not only the representatives of the Red Cross and the OSCE, but also representatives of the Ukrainian authorities,” Lavrov said.

“The convoy has set off. We have received a note with the confirmation of the Ukrainian side’s readiness to receive the aid,” Lavrov added.

Earlier, a spokesman for the Ukrainian military said that Kiev intended to hold up the internationally-supervised aid convoy meant for the Ukraine's east for at least a week. Ukraine said the time was needed for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to establish where exactly the aid should go.

Ukraine again says ‘halt’ to Russian aid convoy; Kiev, U.S. suspect Trojan horse

A convoy of nearly 300 trucks carrying what Russia says is humanitarian aid for victims of fighting in eastern Ukraine moved slowly toward the border on Wednesday despite concerns by Kiev and the West over the shipment, Russian officials said. But Kiev again insisted it would not allow the convoy on its territory.

Around 280 trucks are carrying more than 1,800 tonnes of “humanitarian supplies,” including medical equipment, baby food, sleeping bags and electric generators, according to Russian media.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has justified sending the aid due to the “catastrophic” situation in the besieged rebel strongholds of Luhansk and Donetsk, where officials have warned of a looming humanitarian disaster because of shortages of food, water and power. But there are concerns by Kiev and the West that Moscow could use the operation as a cover for sending in troops.

Russian media said the shipment had passed through the city of Voronezh on Wednesday, which would put it about 300 kilometres from the border crossing at Shebekino, where the foreign ministry said the aid would enter Ukraine. A Rossiya TV report from Voronezh said the convoy had over 495 kilometres to travel, and at an average speed of 60 kilometres per hour, it would arrive at the border only in the evening.
