On August 8 Ukraine prevented an attempted Russian invasion. A Russian “humanitarian convoy” accompanied by Russian military personnel and military vehicles advanced toward the Ukrainian border with the intention of crossing into the country late on Aug. 8, but it was stopped short of the boarder. The Red Cross denied it gave consent to Russian “aid convoys” for Donbas.
