A senior official of the International Committee of the Red Cross will travel to Kiev and Moscow for talks on the delivery of Russian aid to eastern Ukraine, a spokeswoman said.
Laurent Corbaz, head of Red Cross operations for Europe and Central Asia, will stress the agency's "strictly humanitarian role" and say that "the delivery of aid should not be politicised," spokeswoman Anastasia Isyuk said.
A Russian convoy of almost 300 trucks is heading to Ukraine's border to deliver aid.
