Later, press service head of Russia's Southern Customs department Rayan Farukshin confirmed that "all 16 trucks had been staying at the Donetsk checkpoint". "No control was exercised for reasons not depending on the Russian Customs,” he said.
The Russian humanitarian convoy numbering 270 trucks with almost 2,000 tons of relief supplies approached the Ukrainian border on August 14 and remains there since.
