The columns were moving along the following routes: Kalinkavichy-Babruisk, Zhlobin-Svetlahorsk, Gomel-Rechitsa, Mazyr-Yelsk, Mikashevichy-Zhytkavichy-Kalinkavichy, Zhlobin-Gomel, Khoiniki-Rechitsa, Lelchitsy-Mazyr. A gradual decrease in the movement of columns can be observed.
There was insignificant flight activity at military airfields of Belarus. For example, a fighter (most likely a training aircraft of the Belarusian Air Force) took off from Lida. At least three IL-76 transport aircraft of the Russian Air Force arrived in Baranavichy.
Activity of the Russian Armed Forces on the railroad was recorded:
- Movements: Gomel-Nechetny – Gomel-Passenger, Kalinkavichy – Gomel (was spotted earlier at Kozenki railway station, then went to Navabelitsa station), Minsk – Zhdanovichy.
- The loading of equipment was observed at the railway station in Yelsk (military equipment is actively being brought to the station – here and here).
- Loaded trains, as well as trains with empty platforms, were seen at the railway stations: Gomel-North and Khoiniki.
On April 8, 2022, a Tochka-U missile attack was carried out on the railway station in Kramatorsk (the city is under Ukrainian control). The Russian side, denying responsibility for the missile strike, stated that Tochka-U are not used by the Russian Armed Forces, more modern Iskander replaced them. Belarusian Hajun Project presents evidence of Russia’s use of the Tochka-U missile system. From the published radio interception we can learn that on March 18, 2022, An-124 transport aircraft of the Russian Air Force delivered three Tochka-U missile launchers to the airfield in Machulishchy.
Minor movements of military equipment of the Armed Forces of Belarus were spotted. For example, a small column was seen moving along the Mazyr-Yelsk route.
