The Ukrainian foreign Ministry has sent Russia a note of protest

The Ukrainian foreign Ministry has sent Russia a note of protest due to the dispatch of humanitarian aid to the Donbass, said the press service of the Ministry.

EMERCOM of Russia reported on Thursday that the next humanitarian convoy has delivered humanitarian aid to residents of Donbass.

"The thirtieth of July 2020 the Russian side carried out another illegal movement on the territory of Ukraine through the Russian border crossing points "Donetsk" and "Matveev Kurgan" and closed the Ukrainian side of the border crossing points "Izvarino" and "Uspenka" so-called "Humanitarian convoys" for residents of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. In this regard, the Ukrainian foreign Ministry sent the Russian foreign Ministry a note of protest with the requirement of the Russian Federation to stop the Commission of internationally wrongful acts against the sovereignty of our state", - said in a statement on the website MFA of Ukraine.

Humanitarian aid to residents of Donbas delivered from August 2014. During this period, 97 columns of EMERCOM brought to the territory of the South-East of Ukraine more than 84 thousand tons of humanitarian cargo.

The Ukrainian authorities in April 2014 began a military operation against the breakaway LC and the DNI, which declared independence after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN victims of the conflict were about 13 thousand people. The settlement of the situation in the Donbass is discussed, in particular, during meetings in Minsk the contact group, which from September 2014 adopted three documents regulating the steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, after the armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict continue shooting.
