(QHA) -

Movement of Russian trucks into Ukrainian territory shows "direct invasion" of Ukraine by Russia. Head of Ukraine's State Security Service (SBU), Valentin Nalivaychenko said this, commenting the entry of Russian “military convoy” tracks in Ukraine.

A senior Ukrainian security official has accused Russia of invading Ukraine after a humanitarian aid convoy entered the country.

Dozens of trucks entered eastern Ukraine on August 22 after Moscow said it was tired of waiting and accused Kyiv of creating artificial delays.

Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said 90 trucks had entered Ukraine without agreement or participation of the Red Cross, in violation of agreements between Ukraine and Russia.

The Red Cross tweeted that it was not escorting the trucks due to the "volatile security situation."
