More than 70 pieces of Russian military equipment crossed the border into Ukraine overnight, Lithuania's foreign minister has claimed.
Ukrainian border officials began inspecting 280 Russian trucks containing humanitarian aid destined for eastern Ukraine, amid fears it may be used as a cover for a military operation.
"We are very much concerned about the situation developing because, on the one hand, we are talking very much about this so-called humanitarian convoy but, at the same time, we see that escalation continues, and we have reports that during the night 70 pieces of military equipment again entered through the border," Linas Linkevicius told reporters.
