Items from “humanitarian convoys” are being sold in Donetsk



Numerous items from Russian “humanitarian convoys” are being sold in markets in Donetsk, Volodymyr Polovyi, deputy spokesman for Ukraine’s National Security Council, stated at a briefing, January 4, reports RBC-Ukraine.

“We are expecting the arrival of the eleventh so-called “humanitarian convoy” from the Russian Federation. At the same time, according to current information, it has been determined that items from the “humanitarian aid” that supposedly had arrived earlier from the Russian Federation are being sold,” Polovyi said.

According to Polovyi, this indicates that the non-military cargo that arrives in the Donbas from the Russian Federation is “a means of personal enrichment for the terrorist leaders.”

As reported earlier, the eleventh “humanitarian convoy” from Russia to the Donbas has left Noginsk in the Moscow Oblast. The convoy is expected to arrive in the east of Ukraine on January 8.

We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

    Well, not surprising. Isn’t this what Ukraine is fighting for now? To rid itself of corruption and become a European country. The population under the banana so-called LPR/DPR republics need to rise up like they did on the Maidan and say, “enough is enough, and stop the corruption”.

      This has been going on for long time now ! Humanitarian convoys are to show the world how nice russia is ! That russia is at home in Donbas, no customs, no controls, no red cross check, the terrorists must have cigarettes and vodka, material must be able to move both ways, even a white truck can carry coal !
      Cargo200 shuttle trafic must go on. If OSCE could move around , they would be able to report instead for tea parties at the CP etc…..

    This shows the Russian puppets are only in this for themselves. They don’t care about “protecting Russian speakers” or the victims they have created in Donbas.

    You thought they were honest and cared about the welfare of their people?
    Their people are in Russia not Donbas.
