Hajun Project published a situation report on military activity on the territory of Belarus as of 07:00 March 17.

Columns of military equipment of the Russian Armed Forces with «V» marks continue to move across the territory of Belarus (here, here, and here). There is also movement of military equipment by railroad. For example, a train, which was transporting at least 18 units of equipment (Ural and MT-LB vehicles), was moving towards Rechitsa, Gomel Region.

It should especially be noted that KamAZ trucks, as well as an ambulance vehicle of the Russian Armed Forces were spotted in Orsha (Vitebsk Region). Previously, equipment of the Russian Armed Forces had been spotted mainly in the southeastern and central regions of Belarus.

The greatest flight activity was recorded at military airfields in Baranavichy (13 aircraft; departures mainly in the evening: here, here and here) and Lida (20 aircraft; departures during the day: here and here). There was also insignificant activity at the airfields in Luninets (Brest region), Babruisk (Mogilev region), and the village of Vialiki Bokau (Mazyr District, Gomel region).

The Russian Armed Forces continue strikes on the territory of Ukraine with operational and tactical missile systems. In particular, 8 missile launches were recorded from the territory of the Mazyr district, and 4 – from the Kalinkavichy district. It should be noted that missile launches from the territory of Kalinkavichy district were captured on photos (here and here). We also received information about the probable location of the firing position in the Kalinkavichy district, from which the missiles were launched towards Ukraine.

We also receive new reports on the use of civilian infrastructure in Belarus for the needs of the Russian Armed Forces. For example, Russian personnel is accommodated in the dormitory of the professional college in Mazyr (Gomel region), located on Katouskaha street, 48.

Separate units of the Armed Forces of Belarus continue to move. Thus, several convoys of vehicles were recorded moving (here, here, and here). Also, a train carrying equipment of the Belarusian Armed Forces was seen in the morning, entering Zhlobin (Gomel region). T-72 tanks, BMP (infantry fighting vehicles), and self-propelled howitzer 2S1 could be seen on the platforms.

Special attention should be paid to the situation in the city of Brest. In the morning of March 16, we received information that incessant firing and volleys could be heard at the «Brestski» training ground. As it became known later, planned training drills of the Belarusian Armed Forces were being held at the training ground.
