Trains with empty flatcars have been sent from Belarusian railway stations to Kapustin Yar since mid-May 2023.
According to the Belarusian Hajun monitoring group, a military cargo train with at least 10 pieces of Iskander-M missile systems arrived at Asipovichy station (Mahiliou region) from Kapustin Yar village, Astrakhan oblast, Russia.
It’s known that a missile test site of the same name is located there — the 4th state central training site of the Russian Federation. It’s reported that the Iskander-M missile systems have already been put in service with the Belarusian Armed Forces. And this train with Iskanders is not the last one to arrive in Belarus.
We recall that according to the Community of Railway Workers of Belarus, military cargo trains with empty flatcars and freight cars have been sent from railway stations of the Belarusian Railway to Kapustin Yar since mid-May 2023.
For example, on June 15 and June 17, 87 empty cars were sent from Orsha-Uskhodniaya station to Kapustin Yar, with the Belarusian MoD listed as the sender.
