The convoy of around 200 vehicles is carrying some 2,000 tons of cereals, canned food, generators, medicine, warm clothes, and bottled water.

Russia said it offered the Ukrainian border guards to check the vehicles on the border on several occasions, but they declined without citing any particular reason.

On September 13 and on August 22 Russia delivered humanitarian aid to the city of Lugansk in eastern Ukraine.

On both occasions Kiev refused to clear the cargoes and accused Russia of invading Ukraine.

The Russian humanitarian convoy crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border early hours of Saturday and in two and a half hours arrived in Donetsk.

There were no incidents en route.

As the trucks are unloaded, they will head back for Russia.
