Russia sends humanitarian aid to Ukraine

|By:, SA News Editor

A convoy of 280 trucks carrying humanitarian aid for Ukraine left from Russia this morning amid Western warnings against using help as a pretext for an invasion.

Business FM radio quoted Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, saying "It has all been agreed with Ukraine," although other sources say there had been no agreement for Russian vehicles to cross into the country.

With Russia amassing 45K troops on Ukraine's eastern border, NATO says there is still a "high probability" that Moscow could intervene militarily in the country's east.
