Ukraine sets conditions for Russian convoy as death toll soars

A man reacts after shelling in the town of Yasynuvata near the rebel stronghold of Donetsk on August 12, 2014Ukraine set conditions for letting in Russian aid shipments to rebel-held eastern regions as the UN said the death toll in the separatist conflict nearly doubled to more than 2,000 in two weeks. After earlier vowing to block a massive Russian convoy headed for its borders, Kiev said Wednesday it could allow the aid to enter the country after it was inspected by Ukrainian border guards and foreign monitors. Ukraine has raised fears the convoy of nearly 300 lorries could be a “Trojan horse” bringing military help to pro-Moscow insurgents who launched a rebellion in the country’s east. Tensions have risen as the convoy rumbled toward the border, with Western capitals fearing it could spark an escalation in a conflict that has already brought ties with Russia to their lowest point since the Cold War.
