На русском языке: Оперативная сводка от Гаюна о военной активности на территории Беларуси за 31 марта

Hajun Project published a situation report on military activity on the territory of Belarus as of 22:00 March 31.

Russian Armed Forces convoys continue to move through the territory of Belarus (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.). These are mostly supply convoys consisting of KamAZ and Ural trucks. Also, fuel tankers, APC, etc. were seen in the columns. We should especially note a column of fuel tankers seen on its way to the military airfield in Baranavichy.

The main routes of the columns are in the direction of settlements located in Minsk, Mogilev and Vitebsk regions (Minsk, Asipovichy, Orsha and Mogilev). Thus, the route of the columns’ movements shifts to the central and northeastern regions of Belarus.

Columns with fighting vehicles also continue to move. For example, a Russian Airborne Forces column (BMD and 2S9 Nona-S) passed through the city of Gomel. A Russian Armed Forces column of 80-100 vehicles (KamAZ trucks, KrAZ trucks, Ural trucks, Ural Tornado-U trucks, command posts, etc.) was seen moving from Kalinkavichy towards Gomel. A column of at least 70 vehicles (BMD-2, BTR-D, 2S3 Akatsiya) was also seen moving from Khoiniki towards Gomel. Columns were also seen on the following routes: Khoiniki — Rechitsa; Chernobyl zone — Brahin; Gomel — Rechitsa.

It should be noted that the observed military equipment, some of which was damaged (dents, bullet holes, non-working headlights; some vehicles were towed), came from the front line.

We also draw attention to the need to observe precautionary measures when contacting military equipment and soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces arriving from the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Any contact may lead to severe health consequences due to exposure to radiation. 

On March 30, we reported that a column of 16 KamAZ trucks arrived from Minsk to Lida. After unloading near the military airfield, the convoy returned to Minsk and then moved to Mogilev.

Flight activity was recorded at military airfields in Baranavichy (27 departures/3 landings), Lida (11 departures), Vialiki Bokau (4 departures) and Machulischy (2 departures/1 landing). It should be noted that 7 to 20 fighters took off from the military airfield in Baranavichy to Russia. We also note that a military transport aircraft An-124 of the Russian Aerospace Forces arrived at the airfield in Machulischy, and departed later. Previously, such aircraft were used to bring missiles for Tochka-U missile launchers, Iskander missile systems, and other ammunition to Belarus.

It was reported on a possible downed UAV of the Russian Armed Forces near Ivanava (Brest Region). There are reports that the UAV may have been shot down by an air-to-air missile fired by a Russian Air Force aircraft. Information about the incident is being clarified.

Transportation of Russian Armed Forces equipment by rail continues. For example, a train carrying military equipment (Ural trucks, APC, BMP, and Msta-B howitzers) was moving in Gomel (to the Navabelitskaya station). A train with Ural Tornado-U trucks was being unloaded in Yelsk. Another train with military equipment (Nona-S, BMD-2, BTR-D, MT-LB, BTR-MD Rakushka, Strela-10 systems, KamAZ and Ural trucks) was seen at the railway station in Khoiniki. The vehicles came from the front line: some of them were damaged (dents, bullet holes; some had no tracks or flat tires).

Strikes on the territory of Ukraine by tactical missile systems continue. Thus, 17 missile launches were recorded from the territory of the Khoiniki district, six from the Mazyr district, and two from the Kalinkavichy district.

There was information about another sabotage against the railroad infrastructure in Belarus. This time it was near Babruisk. This creates additional difficulties in organizing the transportation of military equipment and ammunition for the needs of the Russian Armed Forces.

A PAZ ambulance bus was seen on the way out of Mazyr. Most likely, it was carrying the wounded.

Minor movements of units of the Armed Forces of Belarus were observed. For example, a small convoy with Uragan multiple rocket launchers was seen near Pruzhany (Brest region). The movements are associated with the exercise of the Defense Ministry of Belarus.
