Once again, a line of big trucks crossing from Russia into Ukraine...with questions about what they contain.

Kiev believes they are a cover to provide weapons and ammunition to separatists based in eastern Ukraine, who are mostly loyal to Moscow...which Russia denies.

DEPUTY HEAD OF NATIONAL CRISIS CENTRE OF THE RUSSIAN EMERGENCIES MINISTRY, OLEG VORONOV, SAYING:

"Russian emergencies ministry formed another convoy to deliver humanitarian aid to Donbass areas damaged (by fighting). Mainly, it is construction materials, food supplies and life support staff."

This latest convoy -- the 8th since mid August and numbering over 100 trucks -- arrived in Donetsk Sunday afternoon as fighting intensified nearby.

It places further strain on a truce reached in September between the two sides...raising fears it could collapse entirely.
