KIEV, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Ukrainian border guards have crossed the border into Russia to begin inspecting a Russian cargo of aid intended for humanitarian relief in eastern Ukraine, a border guard spokesman said.

The border guards would check the cargo on Russian territory at a point opposite the Ukrainian settlement of Izvaryne which is held by pro-Russian separatists, spokesman Andriy Demchenko said. "Ukrainian border guards are there already in large numbers," he told Reuters. (Reporting by Natalia Zinets; Writing By Richard Balmforth, editing by John Stonestreet)
