The departure of a section of a Russian troop contingent from Belarus has been confirmed by satellite images, however, there is a possibility that Russia could deploy other troops to the region, the Belarusian Hajun monitoring group reported on Telegram on March 18.

The group reported a partial withdrawal of Russian troops from Belarus on March 14, and subsequently, satellite images of the Obuz-Lesnovsky training ground were released, confirming the rotation.

Nevertheless, Belarusian Hajun observed that although the number of Russian soldiers at the training ground has decreased, the vacant tents for their accommodation may not have been taken down yet.

“This means that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are not going to wrap up their ‘training camp’ at the training ground, and we should expect the transfer of new groups of military personnel to the Republic of Belarus for training,” the analysts wrote.

As Demchenko noted, some of the units that entered the territory of the Republic of Belarus are being moved to Russia, from where they are transferred to the east of Ukraine.
