Military activity on the territory of Belarus on March 2 / Belarusian Hajun
The intensity of movements of the Russian Armed Forces by rail remains high, and military equipment (including tanks) and personnel of the Russian Armed Forces are being withdrawn to the territory of Russia. There is information that military cargo trains with equipment and military personnel begin to arrive from Russia to Belarus (information is being verified).
This means that there is a rotation of the Russian troops in Belarus: the trained ones are sent to the combat zone, and others arrive instead (for training).
Changes in the size of the group of the Russian Armed Forces in Belarus:
- Equipment — at least 82 units (including 12 pontoon bridge parks (on KrAZ vehicles), 3 boats BMK-150 (on KrAZ vehicles), amphibious transporter PTS-2);
- Personnel — at least 200 people.
