Hajun Project published a situation report on military activity on the territory of Belarus as of 07:00 March 18.

Convoys of military equipment of the Russian Armed Forces with “V” marks continue to move on the territory of Belarus (here, here and here). Mostly, these were trucks and fuel trucks. The number of vehicles in the column may be up to 30 units. Transportation of military equipment by rail is also carried out. Thus, trains with military equipment were seen in Gomel, Zhlobin and Svetlahorsk (Gomel region). T-72 tanks could be seen on the platforms.

Two columns with Pantsir-S1 missile systems were seen in Minsk region, as well as near the town of Mazyr (Gomel region). And transportation of S-400 missiles systems was spotted in Baranavichy (Brest region). Thus, we can state the redeployment of the Air Defense Forces of the Russian Armed Forces.

The transportation of missiles for the “Iskander” missile system was also recorded. It is known that in the evening of March 17, An-124 and An-26 transport aircraft of the Russian Air Force landed at the military airfield in Machulishchy. It should be noted that such planes transported missiles for “Iskander” systems

Wounded soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces continue to arrive from the territory of Ukraine. For example, five PAZ ambulance buses, which are used to transport the wounded, were spotted in Gomel. It was reported that the convoy was moving at low speed in the direction of Gomel airport, from where the wounded are subsequently evacuated by transport aircraft. 

The highest flight activity was recorded at military airfields in Baranavichy (here) and Lida (here and here). Also, helicopters flew from the airfield in Vialiki Bokau (Mazyr district – here). Minor activity was recorded at Gomel airport.

We received information about the concentration of helicopters of the Russian Air Force at the military airfield in Machulishchy. Then a group of 13 helicopters flew towards Babruisk. It became known later that the helicopters flew to Seshcha military airfield (Bryansk region, Russia). The exact reason for the helicopters’ activity is unknown.

Strikes on the territory of Ukraine by operational and tactical missile systems continue. In particular, two missile launches were recorded from the territory of Mazyr district, and three – from the Kalinkavichy district. The launch of missiles from the territory of Kalinkavichy district was captured in a photo. It should be noted that the number of reports of missiles launched was lower than on March 15 and March 16.

We also receive information on the use of conscript soldiers of the Belarusian Armed Forces for “dirty work” and assistance to the Russian Armed Forces. For example, in the town of Kamaryn (Brahin district, Gomel region), conscripts are involved in cleaning of damaged tanks of the Russian Armed Forces from dirt and human remains. It should be noted that earlier, we reported on involvement of soldiers of the Belarusian Armed Forces in unloading the Russian Armed Forces’ echelons with equipment and ammunition.

No movement of the Belarusian Armed Forces units was recorded.
