- NATO condemns Russian action, sees build-up of forces near Ukraine
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen condemned Russia on Friday for sending a "so-called humanitarian convoy" into Ukraine without the consent of Kiev and accused it of escalating the crisis. Kiev accused Moscow earlier on Friday of launching what it called a "direct invasion" of its territory, while Russia warned against any attempt to disrupt the convoy which it said was a purely humanitarian operation. "It can only deepen the crisis in the region, which Russia itself has created and has continued to fuel," Rasmussen said in a statement. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said more than 100 trucks had crossed the border, of which only some had been checked earlier by Ukrainian officials inside Russian territory.

- Ukraine accuses Russia of invasion after aid convoy crosses border
By Natalia Zinets and Dmitry Madorsky KIEV/DONETSK-IZVARINO BORDER CROSSING Russia (Reuters) - The United States demanded Russia withdraw its equipment and personnel from Ukraine after Moscow sent in a convoy of trucks on Friday in what Kiev called a "direct invasion". NATO said Russian troops had been firing artillery across the border and within Ukraine in a major escalation of military support for pro-Moscow rebels since mid-August, a defacto charge that Russia was waging war on its former Soviet neighbour. Moscow, which has thousands of troops close to the Russian side of the border, warned against any attempt to "disrupt" what it said was a purely humanitarian operation; Pentagon press secretary accused Russia of violating Ukraine's sovereignty.
