You're reading: Ukraine will not allow Russia to escort aid across border

“The Red Cross is responsible and is coordinating the delivery of humanitarian aid. As it stands, the contents should be reloaded onto trucks rented by the Red Cross, and we will not allow Russian emergency services or military to escort it,” said Valery Chaly, deputy head of the Presidential Administration in a press conference today. 

Chaly stated that the aid must be brought into Ukraine via a Ukrainian-controlled border crossing. Kremlin-backed insurgents still control border crossings in the east of the country, but Ukraine has said any crossing would be a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and international law.  

Chaly expected the aid to be brought to Ukraine via the northeastern Kharkiv Oblast, which has been unaffected by fighting. He also said Ukraine had yet to receive an inventory detailing the contents of the aid delivery.
