WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that no Russian military personnel were involved in a humanitarian convoy bound for Ukraine, the Pentagon said on Friday.
Hagel sought clarification about the Russian convoy from Shoigu during a phone call on Friday and was "guaranteed" it did not include Russian military personnel and would not be used as a pretext for intervening in Ukraine, the Pentagon said in a statement.
