Ukraine sets conditions for receiving Russian aid

Ukraine has set conditions for receiving Russian aid in the rebel-held east of the country. A huge aid convoy set off from outside Moscow on Tuesday morning.

Ukrainian officials say aid should pass through a government-controlled border post and must be accompanied by Red Cross officials.

The Red Cross says it still needs more security guarantees and information about what is in the lorries. There are Western concerns that Russia is using humanitarian assistance as a pretext to invade eastern Ukraine.
