DONETSK, August 18, /ITAR-TASS/. Border-control and customs officers of Russia and Ukraine are expected to inspect Monday the first group of trucks from the Russian convoy with humanitarian supplies intended for the residents of south-eastern Ukraine.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) reported on Sunday that Russia and Ukraine had fixed procedures for customs clearing and for inspecting the supplies carried by the convoy.
At present 16 trucks from the convoy with humanitarian supplies are at the Russian border checkpoint "Donetsk" at a local motor pool.
In all, the convoy consists of about 270 KamAZ trucks which carry foodstuffs, including baby foods, water, medicines, and power plants: 12 designations with an aggregate weight of 1,856.3 tonnes.
According to an official of the company which is in charge of the transportation of the supplies, "The trucks will be tested by a special scanning device in the territory of Russia".
Ukraine has recognized the Russian supplies, sent under the auspices of the ICRC, as a humanitarian aid.
