Around 70 Russian aid trucks have now entered Ukraine without permission from Kiev and the previously agreed escort of the Red Cross, Reuters reports.
An unnamed Ukrainian government official told the news agency: "The convoy started to move on its own, without consent from the Ukrainian side and unaccompanied by the Red Cross."
Russian President Vladimir Putin has reportedly been informed of the convoy's progress.
