A Win and Win: Russian Humanitarian Convoy to Ukraine…

It is a win either way for Russia and that has been the dilemma for the west. Russia made a chess move and the checker players in the west never saw it coming. I mean really, how in the world could Russia send a real humanitarian convoy? I mean a real one and no games being played. Such as using it as a cover for death and destruction as the west does all the time…

Russia did this knowing that it was a Win Win for Russia, however it played out. The west was set up and after all the hype from the western media, “The convoy was just that, a convoy of humanitarian aid!”

The west believed it was impossible to be anything but a sneak attack and even the media went along and got pie in their face for lying and making up stories to instigate issues with the convoy. Russia was honest about what the convoy held and Russia is not playing games. The people being slaughtered in Ukraine need food and water and Russia is opening a corridor to them. The west had to allow or become the very same as they try to paint Russia as and as I said, “Win Win for Russia!”

MOSCOW, August 21 (RIA Novosti) – The first 16 trucks of the Russian humanitarian convoy are to cross into Ukraine after all the necessary procedures are agreed upon with Kiev, a source familiar with the situation said.

“The International Committee of the Red Cross [ICRC] and Russia have done everything that was required of them to prepare the cargo for passage, including providing the Ukrainian side with all the necessary documents. Now it is all up to the Ukrainian representatives,” the source said.

The Russian Foreign Ministry recently stated that Russia has done everything it could to ensure the security of the convoy’s passage, which has been confirmed by ICRC president Peter Maurer.

The ICRC still has not received confirmation of safe passage for the convoy in Ukraine.

This situation has put the west in a pickle and however they respond it will be bad on them. Allow Russia in and they admit that the situation is desperate for East Ukraine and deny the convoy entry and they are the demons that the world has been watching kill her own people for months now. Either way, Russia just checked the king and it was done with a pawn…

For once the convoy actually crosses the Ukraine border then the humanitarian crossing has to be kept going. For the people are suffering and need food and water. If not allowed to cross, then Russia has done all she can short of war and Ukraine will go down in history as the murderer of many people who call Ukraine home. She killed her own…

The U.S. has been very quiet about this convoy and just as they are very quiet about the MH-17 airline shot down in Ukraine, it only means one thing, Russia is control the situation and that will do nothing but irk the western world and its death loving leaders…

    Trucks with Russian humanitarian aid to war-torn eastern Ukraine are going through customs at the border. Following a delay caused by the Ukrainian side, the convoy may finally start moving to its destination on Friday, a Red Cross official said.

    The first four Russian vehicles carrying humanitarian cargo have undergone customs clearance at the Russian border checkpoint ‘Donetsk’ in the Rostov region and are now being processed by Ukrainian customs officials at the Izvarino checkpoint, reports RIA Novosti.

    Following about a week of delay, the aid convoy may set off on Friday for its final destination – Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

    The vehicles will be accompanied by ICRC vehicles throughout the trip.

    “Only a driver should be inside each truck cabin. Stops are not allowed throughout the route. The column is also accompanied by medics in case there’s need for first aid treatment,” the Russian Emergencies Ministry press service said.

    Earlier, representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross instructed the convoy’s truck drivers on safety.

    A total of 280 vehicles carrying Russian aid to Ukraine left the Moscow region on August 12. Since August 14, the trucks with their cargo – such as medical supplies, food, baby food, sleeping bags and other basic necessities – have remained stranded at the Russian-Ukrainian border. The convoy has been waiting for final approval from the Ukrainian authorities, who kept postponing the process citing security concerns.

    After all the procedures of cargo customs clearance and inspection of the trucks by the ICRC had been agreed upon, and the paper work had been done, the first 16 Russian aid trucks finally moved to the Russian border checkpoint ‘Donetsk’ in the Rostov region. However, it was only on Thursday that the Ukrainian customs service started clearing procedures.

    The ICRC blamed the Ukrainian side for the delay in the delivery of Russian aid to people in the conflict zones.

    The organization “regrets that customs checks – which had been agreed between Russian and Ukraine – were delayed due to Ukraine’s fault,” Laurent Corbaz, head of ICRC’s Department for Europe and Central Asia told reporters on Thursday, as cited by Itar-Tass. The official expressed hope that the humanitarian aid column would set off on Friday.

    The Red Cross also called on all the sides involved to speed up the necessary procedures so that aid can reach those who desperately need it in Ukraine.

    According to the organization, people in areas affected by the ongoing conflict are in “urgent need for essentials like food and medical supplies.” Reports also indicate that the city of Lugansk has neither water nor electricity due to damaged infrastructure.

    “The ICRC has taken all necessary administrative and preparatory steps for the passage of the Russian convoy – which remains at the border, still within Russia, pending customs checks – including sending additional staff to the area and receiving authorization from the Ukrainian authorities to clear the aid as humanitarian cargo after customs inspections,” the ICRC said in a press release on August 21.

    “The organization is therefore ready to deliver the aid to Lugansk, provided both Russia and Ukraine agree on the strictly humanitarian nature of this convoy and provided assurances of safe passage are respected by the fighting parties. Under international humanitarian law, the parties to the conflict must respect and protect humanitarian relief personnel, in particular those legally displaying the Red Cross emblem,” the statement reads.

    The Red Cross also urged the conflicting sides in Ukraine “to take constant care” to spare the civilian population and civilian targets.

    The Red Cross underlined that “attacks must not be directed against civilians or civilian objects, such as homes, schools and medical facilities and vehicles, or against objects indispensable to the survival of the civilian population, such as food and drinking-water installations.”

    “Equally, each party to the conflict must, to the extent feasible, avoid locating military objectives within or near densely populated areas,” the statement said.

    The first Russian trucks carrying humanitarian aid have reportedly reached the east Ukrainian city of Lugansk. Moscow ordered the convoy to proceed, without waiting for further permission from Kiev.

    Moscow has accused Kiev of deliberately holding up the delivery of Russian humanitarian aid to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in eastern Ukraine, according to a new statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry.

    “Our convoy with humanitarian aid is starting to move in the direction of Lugansk,” the Foreign Ministry’s statement reads. “We are of course ready for it to be accompanied by Red Cross representatives and for their participation in the aid’s distribution.”

    A third of the Russian humanitarian convoy, which is around 90 trucks, has now reportedly crossed the border with Ukraine.

    The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is not escorting the convoy.

    “That’s because of the problems with security,” Galina Balzamova of the ICRC told RT. “Lugansk was shelled all night long. We believe we did not get sufficient guarantees of safety from all the parties to the conflict to start escorting the convoy.”

    The head of the Russian Red Cross, Raisa Lukutsova, has said the organization supported the decision to get the humanitarian convoy moving.

    “The fact that the humanitarian mission has started – this has probably been the right decision,” Lukutsova said. “For how long do we have to put up with this mockery? They put forward one demand after another. All of them unrealistic.”

    She added the Russian Red Cross is ready to escort the humanitarian convoy and has appealed to the ICRC for permission to do so.

    ICRC, meanwhile, confirms that people in areas affected by the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine are in “urgent need for essentials like food and medical supplies.”

    The crisis is particularly acute in Lugansk, where people have gone for weeks without water and electricity and have to queue every day for whatever scarce food supplies are brought to the city.

    The western media keeps crying about sending basic medicine, blankets, food and water to these folks. The horror of it all. Those pesky Russians will ruin the world with their good intentions

    I wonder what it’s like to receive humanitarian aid from the US?

    From what I see humanitarian aid from America is kinda deadly…

    That is why aid is criticized from Russia by the west. The west would kill you with it and democratize you with it…
