A Russian convoy to deliver humanitarian aid has reached the Ukrainian border. Some western journalists were given the opportunity to monitor its progress, as well as being allowed to see what they were carrying.
The Ukrainian government had been adamant that this was little more than a ‘Trojan Horse’ being used to transport Russian military hardware to anti-government troops in the east of the country. Trucks ‘inspection’ showed they were carrying quiet a different load.
