A convoy of Russian trucks carrying humanitarian aid for the embattled south-eastern Ukrainian regions is ready to cross the border into Ukraine as the first group of the Red Cross representatives has already set out along the planned delivery route, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in its statement on Wednesday.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov discussed the situation concerning the Russian humanitarian aid for Ukraine with the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Operations for Europe and Central Asia department Laurent Corbaz at a meeting in Moscow.
