На русском языке: Оперативная сводка от Гаюна за 2 апреля о военной активности на территории Беларуси

Hajun Project published a situation report on military activity on the territory of Belarus as of 22:00 April 2.

Russian Armed Forces columns continue to move through Belarus (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc.). The convoys consist mainly of Ural and KamAZ trucks. There were also fuel trucks, Tigr armored vehicles, Ural Tornado-U trucks, etc. In total, at least 133 vehicles could move as part of the columns.

The main routes of the columns are in the direction of settlements located in Gomel and Mogilev regions (Babruisk, Rahachou, Gomel, Kalinkavichy, Mazyr, Gomel, etc.). Thus, the geography of displacements remains localized mainly in the southeastern areas of Belarus, and is associated with the withdrawal of the Russian Armed Forces from the territory of Ukraine.

Columns with fighting vehicles of the Russian Armed Forces are also being spotted in Belarus. A convoy carrying elements of the pontoon-bridge fleet was spotted in Mazyr. Also, a convoy of military equipment, including armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, and Grad MLRS was spotted moving towards Mazyr. A column (Grad MLRS, Tigr armored vehicles, etc.) was moving along the Khoiniki-Rechitsa route. Three columns were seen near Gomel. The first consisted of about 100 vehicles (S-300 systems, armored personnel carriers, trucks, etc.). The second consisted of five BMD-2. The third, consisting of 10 BMD, was moving towards the village of Karaniouka (Gomel district).

We should also note a column of about 40 vehicles moving along the Gomel-Minsk route. The column included 9 Iskander missile systems and their command posts.

Insignificant flight activity was recorded at military airfields in Baranavichy (5 departures; most probably, training flights of the Belarusian Air Force) and Machulishchy (4 departures). It should be noted that 5 military transport aircraft Il-76 arrived to the airfield in Machulishchy from the Russian Federation, and later flew back to Russia. We have no information about the cargoes that were delivered by the aircraft. We should note that there have been almost no reports about Russian Air Force fighters/bombers departures since 00:00, April 2.

Movement of Russian Armed Forces equipment by rail continues. For example, a train with military equipment with numbers on boards painted over was seen at Khoiniki railway station. A train loaded with military equipment was seen at Rechitsa railway station (later, it went towards Gomel). There was also an empty train, which arrived to load equipment. In addition, an echelon with Russian Armed Forces equipment was spotted at Ziabrauka station (Gomel district).

Strikes on the territory of Ukraine with tactical missile systems continue. Thus, 1 missile launch was recorded from the territory of the Khoiniki district, and 6 from the Mazyr district. We should note that in the evening of April 1 (from 19:36 to 23:59) our monitoring group recorded 25 missile launches in the Mazyr and Khoiniki districts. The information was confirmed by reliable sources. At the same time, there was no air alert in Ukraine. There have been no reports of missile launches since 00:00, April 2. The decrease in the number of missile launches may also be related to the relocation of Iskander missile systems to the northern regions of Belarus.

Information about the behavior of Russian Armed Forces soldiers in Belarus:

  • Soldiers drove out of the road near Kamaryn. Probably, they were drunk;
  • In Mazyr, shipment of things looted in Ukraine to Russia continues. After the video was published on the website of the CDEK delivery service, an online broadcast from the offices was turned off;
  • A lot of garbage was left near Yelsk railway station.

The Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported that an entire market appeared in Naroulya for the sale of things that looters (Russian soldiers – ed.) stole from Ukraine. The information was not proved. It is noted that, for example, soldiers actively buy household appliances in Mazyr stores.

A cluster of Russian Armed Forces equipment was observed on the territory of the Mazyrselmash (which produces heating equipment) in Mazyr. A railroad line is connected to the enterprise, which makes it possible to unload/load equipment, ammunition, etc.

The convoy of the Air Defense Forces of Belarus, about which we told yesterday, continues to move. In particular, S-300PS division was moving in the direction of Luninets. According to available information, it is a division of the 15th antiaircraft missile brigade (the place of deployment is Fanipal). The move may be related to the strike on the oil depot in Belgorod (Russia) and the authorities’ fears of similar strikes on the territory of Belarus.
