Russia 'guaranteed' no soldiers in Ukraine convoy: US

A column of Russian lorries drives on a road near the town of Kamensk-Shakhtinsky in the Rostov region, some 30 km from the Russian-Ukrainian border, on August 15, 2014US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called his Russian opposite number Sergei Shoigu on Friday and was promised that no Russian troops are assigned to a “humanitarian convoy” headed to Ukraine. “Minister Shoigu ‘guaranteed’ that there were no Russian military personnel involved in the humanitarian convoy, nor was the convoy to be used as a pretext to further intervene in Ukraine,” the Pentagon said. Moscow has a convoy of white-painted trucks carrying what it says is humanitarian aid to the beleaguered civilian population in eastern Ukraine, where government troops are fighting pro-Russian rebels.
