Ukraine is sending humanitarian convoys to east Ukraine, with dozens of trucks leaving Kyiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kharkiv for a government-held town near Luhansk on August 14, the Ukrainian government has said.
Ukrainian state budget allocated UAH 10 million for the purchase of basic necessities for Donetsk and Luhansk citizens.
Meanwhile, Russian aid convoy has resumed its travel toward Ukraine, with at least part of the convoy heading south toward the rebel-held Luhansk region.
Russian officials have not said where the convoy of nearly 300 trucks is headed. Russia initially said the convoy would cross into the government-controlled Kharkiv region.
Reports on August 14 said the convoy was now in Russia's southern Rostov region, neighboring Luhansk.
Moscow has dismissed claims the convoy is a pretext to send military aid to the separatists fighting government forces in eastern Ukraine.
