Donetsk rebel leader appeals for Russian aid

Trucks of Russian humanitarian convoy are parked in a field outside the town of Kamensk-Shakhtinsky, Russia on August 15, 2014The head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko, said Friday that the inhabitants desperately need Russian humanitarian aid and accused Ukraine of deliberately stalling its arrival. “At the moment, the Donetsk people’s republic has a very bad humanitarian situation and the help that Russia is sending us and we have still not received, we just need it like air,” Zakharchenko said at a briefing in Donetsk. The aid is needed by “the wounded, the sick, the military,” said the steely-eyed leader in military khakis who took the post of “prime-minister” last week after the former rebel leader Alexander Borodai quit. The rebel republic has seen some leadership changes recently, with even the influential commander Igor Strelkov suddenly disappearing from top ranks.
