The main military events on November 6-12
Dear followers! We’ve changed the format of publications of reports on military activity. Now they will be published once a week on Mondays. The last report in the old (daily) format was published on November 6. We note that our online map of military activity is still updated daily.
- Aviation activity was recorded at Machulishchy, Lida, Baranavichy, and Luninets airfields. Flights of aircraft and helicopters of the Belarusian Air Force and Russian Aerospace Forces were recorded.
- On November 7-10, two Mi-8 helicopters of the 50th Combined Air Base of the Belarusian Air Force were stationed at Luninets airfield.
- Every day (on November 7-11), helicopters of the Belarusian Air Force were patrolling certain sections of the state border with Poland. Before patrolling, the helicopters flew from Machulishchy airfield to Baranavichy airfield or to the vicinity of Kamenyuki (to the deployment of the 2284th Separate Radio-Technical Battalion), after which the helicopters started to perform their tasks.
- On November 10, an Il-76 military transport aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces arrived at Machulishchy airfield from Russia. On November 11, the aircraft flew to St. Petersburg.
- On November 10, a flight of a Mi-8 helicopter of the Belarusian Air Force was recorded in the vicinity of Volma village (Smaliavichy district, Minsk region), where the “Site 400. Kupol” is located. The last time a helicopter of the Belarusian Air Force arrived at this location was on October 31. We recall that at the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a command post of the Russian group was stationed at the “Site 400. Kupol.”
- On November 12, an Il-76 military transport aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces arrived at Machulishchy airfield from Russia.
- No rail activity was recorded.
Movements by road
- No large convoys with military vehicles of the Russian Armed Forces were recorded. Single vehicles and small convoys were spotted in Homiel.
- No movements of PMC Wagner vehicles were recorded.
- No large convoys with military vehicles of the Belarusian Armed Forces were recorded. Single vehicles and small convoys were spotted in Minsk, Vitsiebsk, Homiel, and on some sections of the M1, M5, M6, M9 highways.
In general, the level of military activity can be characterized as low. November is traditionally the period when new recruits are trained and servicemen who have completed their service are dismissed. This is also the period when the results of the past academic year are summarized. Such activities are held in military units, formations, and in certain areas of work – within the entire Armed Forces. In this regard, a low level of military activity is expected in November.
Changes in the size of PMC Wagner and the Russian Armed Forces group in Belarus: no data.
