Russia’s 2nd Ukraine aid convoy of 200 trucks crosses border ― RT News

All 200 trucks in Russia’s 2nd convoy carrying long-awaited humanitarian aid for devastated areas of eastern Ukraine have crossed the border after weeks of delays that occurred despite an agreement on relief corridors in the Minsk ceasefire deal.

“At 08:00 Moscow time (04:00 GMT) the customs procedures for all trucks and goods in them were completed,” local customs service spokesman Rayan Farukshin told RIA Novosti news agency.

The trucks started passing through Russia’s ‘Donetsk’ checkpoint into the buffer zone shortly before midnight on Friday. Trucks had to wait for several hours to get clearance for further movement from Russian customs officers supervised by their Ukrainian colleagues.
