First trucks with Russian aid reach Lugansk, E. Ukraine



The first Russian trucks carrying humanitarian aid have reportedly reached the east Ukrainian city of Lugansk. Moscow ordered the convoy to proceed, without waiting for further permission from Kiev.






The first trucks in the Russian humanitarian convoy have arrived in Lugansk, leaders of the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Lugansk confirmed to RIA Novosti.

Earlier, the LifeNews TV channel and Interfax agency also reported that several Russian vehicles carrying aid to the conflict zone made it to their final destination.

On Friday morning, several dozen Russian trucks crossed the Ukrainian border and started moving towards Lugansk, after Moscow ordered the convoy to proceed, without waiting for further permission from Kiev.

Finally the aid arrived. Let's see how peacefully the situation will remain. I'll be posting updates

Russian aid convoy enters eastern Ukraine; Kiev official denounces ‘invasion’



MOSCOW — After a nearly 10-day standoff, at least 145 trucks of a Russian humanitarian convoy crossed into Ukraine on Friday without the permission of Ukrainian authorities or the accompaniment of the International Committee of the Red Cross — a step that Ukraine’s top security official called an “invasion.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Friday morning that Moscow had run out of patience with “delays” and other “excuses” from Ukraine. It charged that Ukraine’s leaders were deliberately trying to slow-walk the delivery of aid to the war-torn region of Luhansk until “there is no one at all to provide help to.”


Calling this an invasion is laughable to say the least. It's actually sad how the niveau is sinking in Kiev

They won't dare shoot at Russia's aid convoy, That will be all Russia needs to really do an invasion.

pretty serious situation..

how on earth did the US, whoops I mean KIEV miss such a large convoy?

Doesn't seem right. Especially with the mass hysteria about the original convoy carrying arms and being a trojan horse.

What happens if there's a huge detonation at a government branch or a military barracks and the US, sorry did it again, I mean KIEV blames the Russian Convoy?

If Russia doesn't mess this up, only aids and doesn't act violently it should give points to Russia regarding international opinions.

Putin probably prefers for the world to see that NATO is a bigger threat than his country is.

- Russia doesn`t want to invade, if so they would have done already

- If Russia does some retaliation after the convoy is being attack, Russia will look "bad," it will be good for Kiev/US/EU propaganda

- Weak Kiev army gets hammered, so also not good for Kiev

- Separatists are protecting the convoy, so they won`t attack it

- Not much to say what will happen, both Russia and Kiev have not much to gain from an attack, but the ones calling the real shots might want to escalate the situation. If something happens you can be sure the orders came from the "US."

- It seems Kiev has sustained heavy losses already, they couldn`t bare attacks from Russia :

Russia are in a no win situation. Kiev will no doubt stop the vehicles and inspect them, and have no doubt they will find some form of weapons.

Note that I don't believe that the Russians are trying to get weapons in.

If Russia is or is not trying to get weapons to the rebels that's what's going to come out of all this. Along with the possibility of the Kiev saying they have come under attack from the people escorting the trucks.

Its a mess that's just going to get worse.

Anybody want to put a bet on when the first truck will get shot at or blown up over the weekend.

of course they didn't miss it.

but they cannot do anything about it, at the moment.

I believe they will try to do or say something very soon.

probably some dirty filthy lies...

the area through which convoy is moving is not under control of Ukrainian army so how do you think they could inspect anything there?

BS. This happens because Putin couldn't stop it ... in reality, Putin should never have allowed the current situation to reach this level at all. They should have come in, with everything they have ... the first day. If they had done that, there would have been no battle, minimal to no casualties ... Ukranians may be fascists, but they aren't monkeys.

And the Russians shouldn't give a "hoot" at what NATO thinks. There is nothing that Russia can lose here, that it hasn't already lost. There is *no* benefit for Russia, to give away Crimean.

And plueeese, don't say Krutchev gave it Ukraine. If the Soviet Union couldn't annex nations, it couldn't give territories either ... once it "imploded", whatever territories it "gave" were void.

That's the media spin started.

Sky news have announced a concerning build up of Russian aircraft and troops on the border near Ukraine.

Nato says it has witnessed an "alarming build-up of Russian military forces near the border with Ukraine, as Kiev described a Russian aid convoy as a "direct invasion".

Now, if Keiv does not allow the distribution of this food because it was not brought into the country with their full permission, I think they should be charged with violating Humanitarian laws.

Japan's government was tying up ships of aid coming into their country after the quake and tsunami. It was good that some organizations defied their orders and brought in supplies to the people or the deathtolls would have been a lot higher. But nobody brought charges against Japan for slowing down aid. I suppose, the US did the same thing during Catrina....stopping people from helping but not supplying needed help themselves. This kind of stuff is a big conspiracy that needs to be examined. Necessary paperwork to help people seems to be a problem with most of the capitalistic nations because government wants control over the people. They do not want people helping their neighbors unless they follow regulations set by the government.

What's stupid is Russia having to lie (Red Cross approved entry) to get their supplies in.

Maybe Nato should "intervene" with boots and hardware on the ground in the East?
I''m sure you'd support that as well?

Interesting development, to bad op is one sided about events in Ukraine, kinda takes away from the importance of the story imo.

Putin to Merkel: Further delays of aid delivery to Ukraine would have been unacceptable



Further delays in the delivery of Russian aid to eastern Ukraine, which is facing a humanitarian disaster, would have been unacceptable, President Vladimir Putin has said in a phone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“Given the obvious protractions by Kiev on the issue of the delivery of Russian aid to southeast regions of Ukraine, which are suffering a humanitarian catastrophe, a decision was made on sending the convoy. Further delaying it would have been unacceptable,” Putin told Merkel on Friday, the Kremlin’s press service reported.

NATO officials told the New York Times, artillery units were moved into Ukraine over the past few days and have been used to fire on Ukrainian forces. “Russian artillery support — both cross-border and from within Ukraine — is being employed against the Ukrainian armed forces,” NATO spokesperson Oana Lungescu said.


This is a violation of another countries sovereignty. I don't know how anyone can think it's "cool" that the Russian federation is putting the world on war notice.

The whole "aid convoy" is a sham, and people who support Vlad know this very well.

Hope the Western Russian supporters pack their belongings and apply for Russian citizenship if their wishes of WW3
come to fruition. It's not in our (The Wests) interests to have folks living here that drool over Russian war tactics.

Unfortunately this convoy could (and very well may) be legally blown to smithereens, That's what would happen if it showed up in my country.

Canucks, did NATO or the "West" bring any aid to Ukraine? And if they did, did Ukraine accept it?

In my opinion, Ukraine would accept it within a blink of a eye.

But when it comes to the people in the south east Ukraine, who cares. In fact, let's have the Humanitarian Aid convoys sit at the border as long as possible, and if the aid convoys get blown to smithereens, oh well.

Not to go off topic, but in the modern age It's the U.S and Nato who stuck their noses everywhere all over the globe. So should Russia just sit back and just watch what's going on in their backyard, where in regions like southeast Ukraine has a good chunk of people who either come from Russian descent and or are Pro Russian. And have spoken to either become independent or join Russia

Just saying U.S and NATO stuck their noses in a lot more places, but ironically Russia gets the fingers pointed at them.

If you follow and believe the Russian side of things:

East Ukraine has Russian speaking people there, thus it is Russian..
Crimea (Ukraine) is Russian..
The Red Cross approved the convoy..
Russia is in no way involved militarily in Ukraine..

Then I guess the West is bad and Putin is a hero and everything is Rosy.

That is, if you fall for that, not saying that you do.

I sure as hell do not.

Why did RT headline that the red cross approved the Convoy, when they didn't?



GENEVA, Switzerland – The Red Cross on Saturday, August 9, denied involvement in a Russian "humanitarian convoy" that Ukraine claimed to have stopped from crossing the border over fears it was an attempt by Moscow to invade the ex-Soviet state.


www.rappler.com...

Can anyone explain that?

They said the red cross approved the convoy and the red cross stated immediately and publicly that they did not.

?

Lies.

Sure, Moscow made an offer to ICRC, ICRC wasn`t responding quickly enough (because Kiev was stalling), so Russia went ahead and drove close to the border with convoy. After that they made contact with ICRC and ICRC was taking control. Kiev stalled again for a week, and Russia had enough of it and went finally in. Read your link carefully, and I guess you haven`t been following the whole situation that good...?
