Poroshenko: Disagreements on Russian humanitarian aid delivery settled
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says disagreements on the delivery of Russia's humanitarian aid to south-eastern Ukraine have been settled due to the international community's support.
Meeting with soldiers released from captivity in the Donetsk region on Friday, Poroshenko said he has maintained regular contacts with world leaders, the presidential press service reported on Friday.
The president also said Ukraine has put together its own convoy of about 80 trucks with humanitarian aid for Donbas residents.
It was reported earlier that a Russian automobile convoy carrying humanitarian aid for the south-eastern part of Ukraine departed from the Moscow region on the morning of August 12 and is currently near the Ukrainian border.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier that Russia had sent a convoy of 262 vehicles to Ukraine in coordination with Kyiv and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and that 198 of these were vehicles with trailers, carrying 1,809.9 tonnes of food products, medicines, power-generating equipment and other items.
