Hajun Project published a situation report on military activity on the territory of Belarus as of 22:00 April 3.

Russian Armed Forces columns continue to move through the territory of Belarus (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, etc.). The convoys consist mainly of Ural and KamAZ trucks. There also were fuel trucks, Tigr armored vehicles, Ural Tornado-U trucks, etc.

Columns move primarily to settlements located in Gomel region (Gomel, Kalinkavichy, Mazyr, etc.). The following main routes of the columns can be distinguished:

  • Mazyr – Kalinkavichy;
  • Minsk – Asipovichy – Babruisk – Gomel;
  • Rechitsa – Gomel;
  • Khoiniki – Mazyr;
  • Svetlahorsk – Rechitsa.

Thus, the geography of displacements remains localized mainly in the southeastern regions of Belarus. In this regard, we can conclude that there is no talk about the withdrawal of the Russian Armed Forces from Belarus. The movements are more likely related to the rotation of the units withdrawn from Ukraine and the transfer of reinforcement units. We also note that columns of the Russian Armed Forces are not withdrawn from the areas of Belarus bordering Ukraine.

Columns of Russian Armed Forces fighting vehicles were also recorded. A column of more than 30 armored personnel carriers was seen in Rechitsa. A convoy of Osa air defense systems was seen moving towards Khoiniki. Also, transportation of Russian Armed Forces armored vehicles (MT-LB, 2S3 Akatsiya) was seen on the Naroulya-Mazyr route. It is notable that the vehicles were transported by trailers with Belarusian license plates.

Especially intensive movements were recorded in Gomel:

  • A column of armored vehicles (about 15 BMD-2) entered the city from the side of the Chernihiv highway;
  • A column of more than 30 BMD-2 was spotted moving along the Chernihiv highway towards Gomel;
  • Another column of armored vehicles (at least 30, including 16 BMD-4M and two BTR-MD Rakushka) was spotted in the city.

We can notice an increase in flight activity at a number of military airfields in Belarus. For example, flight activity was recorded at the airfield in Baranavichy (7 departures; 2 arrivals – An-26 and A-50), in Lida (7 departures), in Ziabrauka (13 departures), in Luninets (arrival of transport An-12) and in Vialiki Bokau (departure of one helicopter).

High traffic was observed at the military airfield in Machulishchy (Minsk district, Belarus):

  • More than 30 helicopters took off. At least six Mi-8 helicopters of the Russian Air Force flew to the Viazma airfield (Russia), where the 378th airbase of the Russian Air Force is stationed, and nine helicopters flew to the Seshcha airfield (Russia);
  • 7 transport IL-76 and a passenger Tu-134 aircraft flew to Belgorod, Chkalovsky and Pskov (Russia);
  • Arrival of 7 helicopters and 7 transport IL-76 (2 from Belgorod, 1 from Pskov).

The movement of Russian Armed Forces equipment by rail continues. For example, a train with military equipment was seen at Rechitsa railway station (in the direction of Gomel), with Ural trucks, KamAZ trucks, and Ural Tornado-U on the platforms. Also, military equipment was seen loading on a train in Rechitsa. It was reported that a new train with military equipment arrived from Gomel to the railway station in Yelsk (BTR-82A, BMP-2 and 152-mm 2S3 Akatsiya were seen on the platforms). A train with military equipment was moving from Gomel-Nechetny station to Gomel-Passanger station in Gomel. It is reported that there were about 70 units of equipment on the platforms (infantry fighting vehicles, airborne infantry fighting vehicles, tanks, Ural and KamAZ trucks).

No strikes against Ukraine by tactical missile systems from the territory of Belarus were recorded.

The story about Russian Armed Forces soldiers sending the loot to Russia continued. The Hajun Project published a three-hour recording from an online camera of the CDEK delivery service office in Mazyr. The recording clearly shows indisputable evidence that at least part of the things were looted in Ukraine.

Another accident involving Russian Armed Forces equipment was recorded near Asipovichy. The driver was reportedly drunk.

No movement of the Belarusian Armed forces units was recorded.
