Kiev authorities had guaranteed the convoy’s safe passage through Kiev-controlled territories, however, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
“We firmly believe in assurances given by the Kiev authorities who pledged to guarantee the convoy’s safe movement via territory controlled by the Ukraine army,” Lavrov told journalists.
He added the militias in Donetsk and Luhansk regions had also been notified about the convoy and expressed hope that they would ensure its safe passage.
