According to the ATO headquarters, the convoy is not big but it is hard to count the exact number of the APCs and trucks. According to preliminary data, armed soldiers were inside the trucks.

The border department of the Russian FSB in Rostov Oblast has not confirmed information about Russian army vehicles crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border yesterday reported in a number of Western media.

On August 14, a Guardian correspondent reported that Russian military vehicles entered Ukraine as Russia’s aid convoy stopped short of the Ukrainian border
