A senior military official said Saturday that Russia wants a "humanitarian bridge" to ferry multiple aid shipments into war-torn areas of eastern Ukraine.Kiev and the West now accuse Russia of having sent in regular troops into Ukraine, who are spearheading a lightning counter-offensive that has seen rebels seize swathes of southeastern territory from government forces, dramatically turning the tide in nearly five months of conflict.NATO said Thursday Russia had sent at least 1,000 troops to fight alongside the rebels, along with air defence systems, artillery, tanks and armoured vehicles, and had massed 20,000 troops near the border. Antonov reiterated denials that Russian troops were fighting in Ukraine.
