Ukraine Says Tanks Enter From Russia Amid Plan for Convoy

Ukraine said an armored column including 10 tanks entered from Russia early today as the government in Moscow unveiled plans to send a second convoy with humanitarian aid into its neighbor’s rebel-held territory.

Government forces destroyed two tanks, captured crew members and seized other vehicles from the column that was flying separatist banners, Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraine’s military, told reporters in Kiev today. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he had no information about the incident and accused Ukraine of providing “a lot of disinformation.”
