Russia said it would dispatch a humanitarian convoy to conflict-torn east Ukraine despite fierce warnings from the West that Moscow not act alone as a cover for sending in troops.

Russia insisted its military would not be involved in the convoy, but Kiev said Moscow could only play a role as part of a broader Red Cross mission.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told European Commission chief Manuel Barroso that Moscow "is sending a humanitarian convoy to Ukraine in cooperation with representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross."

In a telephone call with Barroso, Putin slammed the "catastrophic consequences of the military operation led by Kiev authorities" in eastern Ukraine and stressed the need for an immediate humanitarian mission.
