Several explosions have been reported in an area of Belarus near a military airport that Ukrainian authorities say has been used by the Russian Air Force to attack Ukrainian territory.
The Belaruski Hayun and Flagshtok Telegram channels quoted witnesses on August 11 as saying at least eight blasts were heard and flashes were seen near the Zyabrovka military airport in the southeastern Homel region of Belarus overnight. The base is some 30 kilometers from the border with Ukraine.
The Belarusian Defense Ministry said in a statement that at 11 p.m. on August 10, the engine of a military vehicle caught fire and “measures to extinguish the fire were undertaken,” adding there were no casualties.
The incident came in the wake of a series of explosions at a Russian airbase in the occupied Ukrainian region of Crimea that destroyed at least nine Russian military aircraft. Kyiv has not publicly claimed responsibility for the attack. Russia’s Defense Ministry has denied the Saky base in Crimea was attacked, blaming the explosions on a “violation of fire-safety requirements.”
Ukrainian officials maintain that the Zyabrovka base in Belarus has been used by the Russian Air Force during Moscow’s ongoing unprovoked war against Ukraine, which was launched in February. Last month, the military said Russia has based Iskander-M and S-400 mobile missile systems at the Belarusian airport, using them to strike Ukraine.
August 11 marks the last day of military drills by Belarus’s air force that started on August 9. Belarusian authorities said this week the exercises’ second phase will be held on August 22-25 in the Ashuluk military training base in southwestern Russia near the border with Kazakhstan.
Belarus’s authoritarian ruler, Alyaksandr Lukashenka, has openly supported Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Although Belarusian troops have not taken part in the invasion, Minsk allowed Russia’s military to use the country’s territory to enter Ukraine and shell Ukrainian towns and cities.

This excuse of self igniting military equipment, is making muscovy a laughing stock all over the world.
Also the warehouses with cruisemissiles were destroyed in Crimea and much more. Many attack helicopters and one IL,-76…and 20 Planes.
