Russia denies its vehicles destroyed in Ukraine

MOSCOW (AP) - A spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry has denied reports that Ukrainian forces have destroyed Russian military vehicles that crossed into Ukraine.

Russian news wires on Friday quoted Gen. Maj. Igor Konashenkov as saying that no Russian military convoy has crossed the border as Ukraine has claimed.

NATO also reported the Russian incursion.

The reported Russian incursion came amid a week of drama over a Russian humanitarian aid mission for people in eastern Ukraine caught in the crossfire of fighting between government troops and pro-Russian separatists.
