DAVYDO-MYKILSKE, Ukraine — Russia sent dozens of aid trucks into rebel-held eastern Ukraine today without Kiev’s approval, saying its patience had worn out with the Ukrainian government’s stalling tactics. Ukraine called the move a “direct invasion.”

Ukraine has long accused Russia of supporting and arming the rebels, a charge Russia denies.
