MOSCOW Aug 22 Russian President Vladimir Putin
has been informed that a Russian aid convoy has moved towards
the Ukrainian city of Luhansk, where pro-Russian separatists are
fighting Ukrainian government forces, RIA news agency quoted
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying.
Russia said on Friday it was no longer prepared to tolerate
any delays to an aid convoy heading for Ukraine and that the
trucks are starting to move towards Luhansk.
A Reuters witness at the border said the lead trucks in the
convoy had started their engines, but had not yet moved beyond
the Ukrainian border checkpoint.
