Russia sends 100th ‘humanitarian convoy’ to occupied Donbas

The Russian side has sent the 100th "humanitarian convoy" to the occupied territory of Donbas, according to the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service.

"From 5:30 am to 6:35 am, two columns of the so-called humanitarian convoy from the Russian Federation passed through the Donetsk and Matveev Kurgan checkpoints. The trucks, which were 40-50% full, allegedly transported medicine and medical supplies," the report reads.

The State Border Guard Service noted that the 100th convoy consisted of 14 vehicles. Its movement, like the previous ones, occurred with a gross violation of the norms of international and domestic legislation and modalities agreed with the International Committee of the Red Cross. The Ukrainian side carried out only visual observation without performing control functions.
