SBU: Entry of Russian ‘convoy’ a direct incursion into Ukraine

Ukraine sees the entry of a Russian “humanitarian convoy” into its territory as a direct incursion.
Chief of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Valentyn Nalyvaichenko told this to reporters on Friday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“We call this a direct invasion for the first time under the cynical cover of the Red Cross,” he said.
He said that the trucks and their drivers had nothing to do with civilians. Nalyvaichenko said that the drivers of Russian trucks include people who will take part in torturing hostages captured by terrorists. And some of these drivers are persons from convoy and other units of Russia who will later hide their crimes.
He also said that the convoy’s drivers received Russian passports for traveling abroad only on August 9-10.
In addition, according to Nalyvaichenko, the products of Russian trucks will be passed to terrorists, while the trucks themselves will be used to carry firearms.
Nalyvaichenko also said that this operation was led by a Russian general.
“Ukraine will inform the Red Cross in every way possible so that Ukraine could not be involved in a provocation, so that we do not use restrictions or force used against the so-called assistance vehicles,” he said.
He noted that the use of military force against the Russian convoy was not currently being planned.
