GENEVA, August 17 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian and Ukrainian customs officials and border guards have agreed on inspecting the first group of trucks with humanitarian aid for residents of war-torn eastern Ukraine, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) reported on Sunday.
“Border and customs officials from Russia and Ukraine have agreed to inspect the first group of Russian convoy trucks shortly. We’ll observe,” the Geneva-based organization said in a statement posted on its website.
The Red Cross earlier reported Russia and Ukraine had agreed customs and inspection procedures for the Russian humanitarian aid convoy.
The first 16 trucks loaded with Russia’s humanitarian aid for east Ukraine residents have already arrived at the Donetsk checkpoint in the southern Russian Rostov Region.
Russia’s convoy of trucks with humanitarian supplies for the population of east Ukraine set out early last week from the Moscow Region. The humanitarian supplies include foodstuffs, baby food, medicines and drinking water.
The aid convoy includes about 270 trucks delivering 2,000 tons of basic necessities for east Ukraine residents. The Moscow Region administration said the humanitarian cargo included 400 tons of groats, 100 tons of sugar, 62 tons of baby food, 54 tons of medicines and medical items, 12,000 sleeping bags and 69 mobile power units.
Red Cross representatives earlier made random inspections of the aid convoy’s trucks.
