Ukraine-bound Russian Convoy Stuck Amid Bickering
Hundreds of Russian trucks carrying aid intended for rebel-held eastern Ukraine remained parked Wednesday in the southern city of Voronezh, their fate shrouded in mystery as Ukraine accused Moscow of plotting to use them as a cover for invasion. Fighting between government troops and pro-Russian separatists increased as the U.N.’s human rights office released figures showing the number of people killed in eastern Ukraine appears to have doubled in the last two weeks to more than 2,000. Ukraine and Russia on Tuesday tentatively agreed that the aid would be delivered to a government-controlled crossing in Ukraine’s Kharkiv region, which hasn’t been touched by the months of fighting that have wracked neighboring regions. The cargo would then have to be inspected by the International Committee of the Red Cross. But accord has soured into acrimony with the spokesman for Ukrainian President Poroshenko accusing Moscow of possibly planning a “direct invasion of Ukrainian territory under the guise of delivering humanitarian aid.”
