France says Russian convoy to Ukraine may be "cover" for incursion
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Tuesday that a Russian convoy of 280 trucks en route to Ukraine could be an attempt by Moscow to install a permanent presence in the country.


"We must be extremely careful because this could be a cover for the Russians to install themselves near Lugansk and Donetsk and put us before a done deed," he told France Info radio. "This (convoy) is only possible, only justifiable, if the Red Cross authorises it."
