The first Russian aid envoy has been 'allowed into Ukraine,' Reuters reports.
After having passed through the Russia-Ukrainian border they trucks are now stationed in "no-man's land" between the two checkpoints.
The convoy has been stranded at the border for nearly a week due to Ukrainian concerns it was a ruse to invade the country.
Moscow denies the allegations and said it was keen to help alleviate a humanitarian disaster in the region. However, fighting continued in east Ukraine today killing five troops and injuring 21 others.
