Inform Napalm: Under Guise Of Parade, Russia Brings Columns Of Equipment And Soldiers To Belarus


What's going on?

Units, weapons and military equipment of the Western Military District (WMD) of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have entered the territory of Belarus.

According to official reports of defense agencies, the Russian military are supposed to take part in the parade in Minsk on July 3. However, the transfer was recorded in the evening of June 20 in Vorsha. The activists photographed armoured personnel carriers of BTR-82A of the aggressor state near the Vorsha railway station, Inform Napalm writes.

It is noteworthy that the Ministry of Defence of Belarus stated that it was on 21 June that the Russian military arrived for the parade, which obviously contradicts the reported facts.

According to the press service of the Western Military District of the Russian Armed Forces, and according to the available information about the organizational and staff structure and composition of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, servicemen from the 4th Guards “Kantemirovskaya” Tank Division (Military Unit 19612, administration - Naro-Fominsk, Moscow Region) and 27th Sevastopol separate motorized rifle brigade (Military Unit 61899, permanent station - settlement Mosrentgen, Moscow) are being transferred to Belarus to participate in the parade. Both units are part of the newly formed 1st Tank Army of the Russian Armed Forces.

To take part in the parade, at least 300 servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces must be transferred to the parade as part of the walking and mechanized units. Besides, on July 3, 2019, aircraft of the Russian Air Force and Space Forces will be in the sky above Minsk as well.
