Moscow - Russia said on Wednesday that its next aid convoy to crisis-hit southeastern Ukraine would be followed by others despite Kiev's fears that they may be used to supply pro-Kremlin insurgents.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he expected Moscow to send a second truck convoy loaded with aid into the rebel-held territory “in the nearest future. And I am sure that it will not be the last because assistance there is needed in huge amounts.”
