UNITED NATIONS, March 6. /TASS/. Russia believes politicized assaults concerning Russia’s humanitarian assistance to Donbas are groundless and cynical, Russia’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Friday.

"We think that assaults over humanitarian convoys are ungrounded and cynical. Such things will not tell on our commitment to help people in Donbas who need urgent assistance," he said, adding that Russia would continue to provide assistance to eastern Ukraine.

He reminded that Russia had sent 17 humanitarian convoys to eastern Ukraine, with the last one having been "completely inspected by Ukrainian customs and border officers." He severely criticized US’ Permanent Representative at the United Nations Samantha Power for saying that the Ukrainian side was unable to control all the trucks with Russian humanitarian aid. The Kiev embassy goes on supplying Power with "rather cheap disinformation," Churkin said.
