Moscow: A day after Ukraine agreed to ensure safe passage for the humanitarian aid convoy in areas controlled by government forces, a senior diplomat Wednesday said the Russian convoy for Ukraine`s eastern regions is ready to resume its travel.

"Common understanding of readiness to start the convoy has been registered," Xinhua quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying following a meeting with Laurent Corbaz, head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Operations in Europe and Central Asia.
