The Russian convoy of trucks that delivered humanitarian aid to Lugansk in southeastern Ukraine on Friday evening has returned to Russia, Nikolai Sinitsyn, a spokesman for the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) border department for the Rostov region, told Interfax.
"The Russian humanitarian convoy that unloaded in Lugansk has returned to Russia. The first vehicles have already entered the territory of the Donetsk automobile checkpoint," Sinitsyn said.
An Interfax correspondent had reported earlier from the Russian side of the border that several tens of white Kamaz trucks making up the Russian humanitarian convoy for Lugansk and Donetsk residents had passed through the Ukrainian customs checkpoint of Izvaryne on the opposite side of the border and entered the Donetsk checkpoint.
