MOSCOW - A Russian convoy of 280 trucks carrying humanitarian aid has left for Ukraine on Tuesday morning, Itar Tass news agency reported.
"It has all been agreed with Ukraine," Business FM radio quoted President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, as saying.
The US and Ukrainian presidents agreed on Monday that any Russian intervention in Ukraine without Kiev's consent would be "unacceptable" and a violation of international law.
