EU blames Russia for violating Ukraine border

The European Union has blamed Moscow for the “clear violation” of Ukraine’s border after a Russian aid convoy crossed into the Ukrainian territory.

“We deplore Russia’s decision to enter the humanitarian consignment into Ukrainian territory, without the ICRC’s [International Committee of the Red Cross] escort or the consent of the Ukrainian authorities,” Sebastien Brabant, spokesman for EU foreign affairs chief, Catherine Ashton, said on Friday.

“This also goes counter to the previous arrangements reached between Ukraine, Russia and the ICRC. We urge Russia to reverse its decision.”

He emphasized that Ukraine’s sovereignty “must be respected.” The EU official praised the authorities in Kiev for their “restraint as well as their readiness for further talks in order to avoid a further escalation of the crisis.”

Ukraine accuses Russia of launching a “direct invasion” of its territory after dozens of Russian trucks carrying aid crossed the border with Ukraine to deliver food and medical supplies to the people in the conflict-stricken regions in eastern Ukraine on Friday.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said the entry of the Russian convoy represented a “flagrant violation of international law.”

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry had earlier said it did not grant permission for the convoy to enter Ukraine but the action was informally allowed to avoid “provocations.”

Russian media have reported that the first aid convoy, which includes a total of 70 trucks loaded with food, water, generators and sleeping bags, has reached the eastern Ukrainian city of Lugansk.

Kiev is zeroing in on pro-Moscow activists in their two important eastern bastions of Donetsk and Lugansk. This is while the humanitarian situation on the ground is deteriorating in the two regions as the people there have been suffering from the lack of water and power supplies for weeks now.

    How many times did the US enter another country many without UN resolution, Russia delivers aid for starving people, US delivers “peacebombs” and al-cia-da to genocide people, there is a slight difference I think.
    The majority of the world is with Russia.

    Nazis in kiev following the same tactics as nazi germany in WWII in leningrad shelling the city while starving the population, but its no surprise since in WWII the most hardcore nazis after the germans were ukrainans, it seems they carrying on the traditon.

    maidan nazis, maidan nazi leader, svoboda nazis, azov batallion, look up them and their logo its almost the same as an Ukrainan waffen ss death squad had in WWII.
    So much to that.
    The EU is siding with nazis and plays the lapdog of the US. who wants to pull down and alianate both economies,their economy has already collapsed so they think its in their interest to destroy the good relations beetween Russia and the EU and to pull down our economy aswell, that simple.
    EU leaders are sure dumb, a 10 year old could see through that,

      Bullshit! Nobody’s with Russia except maybe Bielorussia and Kazhastan. Maybe you forgot the times when Russia invaded Hungary and killed your citizens. 1956

        Sorry buddy but you are wrong the majority of the world is with Russia, except a few butthurt people like you and govts wich are a lapdog to the US.

        I havent forgotten anything but those Russians are long dead, even their children are now old should I still hate them? Should I also hate germans? because many of them were nazis in WWII so their grand children or grand grand children are sure evil too, right? WRONG, or should I hate you a Romanian who backstabbed Hungary more than one time, occupied and looted Budapest at the end of WWI, sided with Russia at the end of WWII killing Hungarians even civilians, should I hate you?NO, you live in the past, try the present, the US govt have been hijacked by globalist banxters and the military industrial complex and their minions, they want full spectrum dominance, they steamroll third world countries and support the worst terror groups ever, so think again be objective, and try to be a little bit less butthurt about Moldova, according to UN charter, chapter 1 every group of people has the right of selfdetermination through a referendum, that all wouldnt have happened if there is not a coup in kiev wich put nazis in power operation gladio style, google maidan nazis, maidan nazi leader, svoboda nazis, azov batallion, and their logo wich is based on a WWII waffen ss death squad logo, look it up.
        You are an occupied country at the moment just that you know how many US bases do you have?a lot, do you think they would leave if you would ask them?Japan tried and they were laughed at, so much to that.

      The majority of the world has been constantly brainwashed by the EU and US main stream media propaganda.
      Btw, it seems like poroshenko was never going to allow the convoy to enter Ukraine because he clearly wants to punish the people in the east for not submitting to the new authority “How dare they defy my authority? I will make them suffer for that”, and this is exactly what the new nazis are doing

        If they are nazis , what do you call your country? Invading other countries?

    • geo

      Since you call everyone “nazi”- a word used intensively by Pravda and pravda readers, asshole-why don’t you move to Russia and have sex with Putin, since you like him so much. Or maybe you are one of the thousands and thousands paid russians propaganda dogs who make comments in every country’s newspapers around the world, supporting Russia. Let me put it plain and simple so that you can get it through your communist head; Those people in eastern Ukraine HAVE TO OBEY THE LAW. Any armed citizens will be taken out. The russian population of Ukraine has 2 choices: to lay down arms and obey the law or leave to Russia. Simple. Get it, stupid nazi?
