According to Walker, the vanguard of the convoy was directed to Kamensk-Shakhtinsky, which is on the road leading to Krasnodon and Luhansk.

At about 14:00 Kyiv time, one column stopped and the journalists were allowed to take a look inside some of the trucks.

A New York Times correspondent wrote that some trucks carried sleeping bags. But, the man who showed the goods had an obvious military tattoo.
