US concerned about second Russian ‘humanitarian convoy’

The United States has expressed concern about a statement made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov regarding the sending of a second “humanitarian convoy” to eastern Ukraine.
U.S State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said this at a briefing in Washington.
“We are certainly concerned about Russian plans for a second aid convoy. Any new mission done without the explicit permission of Ukraine would not be yet another provocative measure that would only escalate a situation President Putin claims he wants to resolve,” she said.
As reported, Lavrov said on Monday that Russia wants to send another “humanitarian convoy” to eastern Ukraine by the end of the week.
