Ukraine agrees to Red Cross-led aid mission

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine says it has agreed on a Red Cross-led humanitarian aid operation with Russia, the European Union and other international partners to alleviate suffering in the separatist-held city of Luhansk.

President Petro Poroshenko's office said in a statement Monday the plan had received backing from President Barack Obama.

The Kremlin earlier announced that it was dispatching the humanitarian convoy.

Ukraine has objected to Russia sending any aid to the region, and the West has strongly warned Russia that any attempt to send its military personnel into Ukraine under the guise of humanitarian assistance would be seen as an invasion.
