Already forgotten Kiev wasn`t willing to give security clearance ?
Because they needed to inspect the trucks along with the Red Cross and Russia had already known this, but instead of doing what he agreed upon he did it his way.
Kiev taught they could stall it with one technicality after another, and Russia just said "screwed it" and went in after waiting long enough.
So wanting to make sure that there was only humanitarian aid in those trucks was a technicality that any country would have considering the circumstances.
Iranian state run media is always the place to get the truth.

Just like Nazi Germany did when they invaded Ukraine...
Just like the USSR when they invaded Ukraine.
See, the NAZI apple doesn't fall far from the Putin tree does it.
A Ukrainian parliamentarian and former minister of emergencies was attacked and beaten by a group of radical nationalists in the port city of Odessa on Tuesday. He was to take part in a press conference ahead of the country’s parliamentary election.
Nestor Shufrych, a deputy from toppled President Viktor Yanukovich’s Regions Party, was diagnosed with a brain concussion and closed craniocerebral injury after he was “welcomed” by Odessa activists from the Right Sector, AutoMaidan, and other right-wing political groups, the regional office of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs reported.
1) Reporters could choose which trucks they wanted to inspect while waiting on border
2) ICRC inspected trucks
3) Ukrainian border inspected trucks
4) Trucks were driven directly to Lugansk and unloaded with reporters at the scene and distributed by ICRC
Timur Olevsky from TV Dozhd says that he has been able to see the inside of several of the KAMAZ trucks specially paint white for this ‘humanitarian’ exercise. What was immediately noticeable, he says, is that those he saw, while indeed, containing buckwheat, water, etc., were less than a third full. This is confirmed by tweets from FT journalist Courtney Weaver, who writes that a lot of them are mostly empty.
That, however, cannot be known since despite entirely false claims from the Kremlin and Russian Foreign Ministry, the International Red Cross were never shown the paperwork and were not able to check the contents.
Several days ago western journalists were offered the opportunity to inspect any of the vehicles at random and none discovered the military Trojan horse that the Kiev government insisted was packed away in the vehicles.
In fact, the journalists (even those from media outlets highly critical of Russia) found…humanitarian aid! Ukrainian border guards also inspected the trucks and found no military equipment.
Nevertheless, despite fact that the humanitarian nature of the mission had been confirmed (and Kiev had again beem caught in a lie) the White House today described the convoy in terms that purposely suggested it was a military Trojan horse:
Article 62 of Constitution (translation from www.constitution.ru... ):
A citizen of the Russian Federation may have the citizenship of a foreign State (dual citizenship) according to the federal law or an international agreement of the Russian Federation.
The possession of a foreign citizenship by a citizen of the Russian Federation shall not derogate his rights and freedoms and shall not free him from the obligations stipulated by the Russian citizenship, unless otherwise provided for by federal law or an international agreement of the Russian Federation.
Foreign nationals and stateless persons shall enjoy in the Russian Federation the rights and bear the obligations of citizens of the Russian Federation, except for cases envisaged by the federal law or the international agreement of the Russian Federation.
Article 6 of Federal law about citizenship in Russia (my lazy translation):
Citizen of Russian Federation with possession of foreign citizenship shall be considered by Russian Federation as citizen of Russian Federation only, except for cases envisaged by the international agreement of the Russian Federation or the federal law.
Acquisition of foreign citizenship by citizen of Russian Federation don't terminate Russian citizenship.
List of countries with agreements about dual citizenship: Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Armenia.

Now you are claiming Ukrainian border guards inspected the trucks and allowed the humanitarian aid to be delivered? Please make up your mind. Choose one story and stick with it.
As for inspecting the trucks, as I have pointed out time and again, the trucks were a diversion. While everyone's attention was focused on the trucks, Putin was deploying something elsewhere. Do you really think it was a coincidence that almost immediately after the "humanitarian aid" arrived, the separatists launched a major offensive that checked the loyalist advance? In any case, reporters are not trained customs agents; they just peered in back and saw water and bandages. They did not take a blow torch to the muffler or pry open the door panels looking for hidden weapons and ammunition.
