US urges Russia to withdraw convoy from UkraineA Russian convoy carrying humanitarian aid for residents in rebel eastern Ukrainian regions moves along a road about 30 miles from Voronezh, Russia, Aug. 14, 2014.

A Russian convoy carrying humanitarian aid for residents in rebel eastern Ukrainian regions moves along a road about 30 miles from Voronezh, Russia, Aug. 14, 2014.

The United States is calling on Russia to immediately withdraw its humanitarian convoy from Ukraine amid escalating tensions between Washington and Moscow.

The Pentagon on Friday called Russia’s sending of a convoy into Ukraine a violation of the country’s sovereignty.

"This is a violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by Russia," Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, told a briefing.

"Russia must remove its vehicles and its personnel from the territory of Ukraine immediately. Failure to do so will result in additional costs and isolation."

Kiev's European allies also blamed Moscow for the “clear violation” of Ukraine’s border after a Russian aid convoy crossed into the Ukrainian territory.

“We deplore Russia’s decision to enter the humanitarian consignment into Ukrainian territory, without the ICRC’s [International Committee of the Red Cross] escort or the consent of the Ukrainian authorities,” Sebastien Brabant, spokesman for EU foreign affairs chief, Catherine Ashton, said on Friday.

Russia’s UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin denied all such allegations, saying the aid includes electric generators, sugar, tea and baby food.

“The US does not have the monopoly on humanism,” he said, adding, “If you are trying to question our humanism, I would resent that.”

“It was time to move and so we did,” Churkin said.

Chukin made the remarks after an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council held to discuss the entry of Russian aid trucks into Ukraine without Kiev’s approval.

The Russian ambassador criticized some UN Security Council member states for their “staggering efforts to distort facts.”

GAZA, August 22 (RIA Novosti) – Hamasgunmen on Friday executed at least 18 Palestinians suspected of collaborating with Israeli security services, according to Al Quds radio station.

In the morning, 11 people were shot dead in the park near Al Azhar University in Gaza City. Seven other were killed after afternoon prayer outside Al Omri mosque located in the center of the city.

The local Al Majd website cited a representative for Hamas law enforcement services as saying that a person would be shoot dead in the field “in case it can be asserted that this man works for the enemy.” Hamas said it would not release names or photographs of those executed in order to protect their families.

One of the biggest executions in the history of the Gaza Strip took place a day after three senior Hamas commanders were killed in the Israeli Defense Forces air strike.

Thursday morning Hamas announced that its top commanders - Mohammed Abu Shammala, Raed Attar and Mohammed Barhoum - were killed in the IDF bombing of a house in the town of Rafah in southern Gaza.

On Wednesday, an Israeli strike killed the wife and seven-month-old son of Mohammed Deif, the head of Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas.

A five-day truce in Gaza between the Palestinian Hamas movement and Israel collapsed on August 19, some eight hours before the official deadline. More than 2,000 Palestinians, mostly civilians, 66 Israelis and a Thai national have been killed since the start of Israeli operation in Gaza on July 8.

Putin to Merkel: Russia Not to Allow Further Delay in Aid Delivery to East Ukraine

MOSCOW, August 22 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a phone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday that Russia had to act decisively in the situation with the aid convoy in order to prevent further delays in the delivery of humanitarian cargo to the crisis-hit eastern Ukraine.

“Putin stressed that considering Kiev's blatant attempts to hinder the delivery of Russian humanitarian aid to Ukrainian regions caught in humanitarian crisis the Russian leadership has decided to move the truck convoy [across the Ukrainian border],” the Kremlin press service said.

“Further delays would be inadmissible,” the statement said quoting the Russian president.

“Putin has also expressed serious concern over the ongoing large-scale escalation of Kiev’s military operation in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions leading to new casualties among the civilian population,” the statement said.

Earlier in the day, at least 60 trucks from the Russian convoy carrying humanitarian aid to violence-torn Luhansk and Donetsk regions crossed the border with Ukraine allegedly without clearance by Ukrainian customs officials and without escort provided by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Moscow said Ukrainian authorities had been holding up for days the delivery ofhumanitarian aid to the trapped civilians in besieged Luhansk.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier today that Kiev’s dragging on the process of delivering Russian humanitarian aid to eastern Ukraine seemed to be an attempt to create a situation when there is no one left to be helped.

ICRC Head of Operations for Europe and Central Asia Laurent Corbaz said Thursday he regretted that the Ukrainian customs service failed to inspect the Russian humanitarian cargo in a timely fashion, thus delaying the humanitarian mission.

The convoy is carrying about 2,000 tons of humanitarian aid, including 400 tons of grain, 100 tons of sugar and 54 tons of medication, along with other cargo. The delivery was organized to address humanitarian concerns in the affected Ukrainian regions.

Laurent Corbaz earlier described the situation in Luhansk as “critical,” adding that thousands of people were reported to be without access to water, electricity and medical aid.
