Belarusian opposition news sources continue to closely monitor the activities (activity) of Russian troops on the territory of Belarus and the local army, informing the international community about it. On May 18, the monitoring group “Belarusian Gayun” (banned in Belarus) published the details of its observations on its Telegram channel.
According to Belarusian observers, that day between 11:20 a.m. and 1:10 p.m. from the “Baranovichi” military airfield, located in the Brest region, to the “Machulishchi” airfield near Minsk, 8 Su-34 fighter-bomber units and 2 Su-30SM combat aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
In addition, Ukrainian media confirms that at present the designated 10 aircraft are at the indicated airfield. At the same time, paying attention to the fact that the former base airfield was much closer to Ukraine, 80-85 km from the border. They suspect that the relocation of the planes is somehow connected to what happened in the Bryansk region of the Russian Federation on May 13.
In addition, 20 km from the border with Ukraine, according to the sources of the “Belarusian Gayun”, a line of “dragon’s teeth” appeared on the territory of Belarus. The publication notes that 10 km from Gomel, near the M8 highway to the Ukrainian border, the mentioned strip of concrete anti-tank fortifications appeared. In addition, very close to it, construction work is underway to create, presumably, fortifications.
It is symbolic that this morning, at a meeting of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly, Lukashenka called the Ukrainian offensive “disinformation” and said that “from my point of view there is no “counter-offensive” and cannot be”. That is, Lukashenka does not believe in a counter-offensive, but decided to play it safe early?
