According to the operational data from Information Resistance, after the Russian Foreign Ministry statement that the convoys with “humanitarian aid” from Russia would enter the territory of Ukraine without the permission of Ukraine, the vehicles of this convoy started moving, crossing the border between the Russian Federation and Ukraine.

We are talking about 34 trucks in the convoy that were previously searched by Ukrainian border guards and customs officials. However, for them to enter  into the territory of Ukraine, they needed permission from Ukraine after the Red Cross would have ensured their escort.

Ukrainian border guards who carried out the inspection of the convoys on the territory of the Russian checkpoint, were pushed back by Russian military servicemen, after which the convoy began to move.

Currently, the convoy moves on Ukrainian territory without escort by representatives of the Red Cross.

Thus, Moscow is no longer hiding and continues its provocation under the name of “humanitarian assistance to the residents of Donbas.” The entrance of the Russian convoys into Ukraine without the permission of the Ukrainian authorities and without escort of the cargo by representatives of international organizations is a gross violation by Russia of all imaginable rules of international law regarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the state.

According to our data, the drivers of these vehicles are solely Russian citizens, [they] all have Russian passports of the old design for international travel.

    Yo, this can only be resolved militarily. To fight the Russians u need proper weapons.

    Get urselves some SPIKE family guided missiles, Lynx MLRS and Delilalh rounds plus some SPYDER SAMs.

    As it is now u r fighting using stupid russian-made weapons. You’ll get nowhere with them…
