Russian trucks are loading equipment from Ukrainian military plants - military spokesman

KIEV, Aug 23 (Reuters) - A Ukrainian military spokesman said on Saturday that Russian aid trucks, which crossed into Ukraine without official permission on Friday, had been loading up production equipment from military plants in Ukraine.
