Russian convoy headed to Ukraine - Aid? Trojan Horse?

...a mammoth convoy of some 260 trucks thundered across Russia on Tuesday bearing thousands of tons of humanitarian aid for the people of the besieged Ukrainian city of Luhansk.

The Kremlin has insisted that it is interested only in relieving the suffering of civilians and has called for the supplies to be delivered speedily under the auspices of the International Committee of the Red Cross. But Ukraine, suspecting that the convoy is more a threat than a sincere offer of help — perhaps an attempt to infiltrate Russian forces into the country under the guise of a humanitarian mission — said on Tuesday that the trucks would be barred at the border.

This is a bit puzzling, Vlad doesn't care about world opinion nor does he care about the sufferings of people. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Kiev vows to halt Russian aid convoy.

Ukraine will refuse entry to a convoy of 280 Russian trucks carrying humanitarian aid to the east of the country amid fears in Kiev and Western capitals that Moscow’s mission is aimed at shoring up a separatist rebellion.

The Ukrainian government said it would consider any illegal crossing into its territory an act of aggression after Moscow hastily dispatched a column of vehicles with 2,000 tonnes of aid towards the border following an apparent deal with Kiev on an aid mission.
