In Belarus, KGB officers conduct mass searches and checks, trying to find those involved in the explosions at the Machulishchi military airfield. According to the Viasna human rights project, everyone who was involved under political administrative articles from 2020 to 2023 was under suspicion.
After the searches, the detainees are sent to the KGB pre-trial detention center. According to Viasna, at least 10 people have already been detained.
On the morning of February 26, two explosions occurred at the airfield. As a result, the Russian A-50 airborne early warning and control aircraft was damaged. The monitoring project "Belarusian Guyun" claims that after that he went to the 325th Aircraft Repair Plant in Taganrog.
On March 3, the partisan project of the former Belarusian security forces, BYPOL, said that Belarusian partisans had been monitoring the Machulishchi airfield for two weeks with the help of drones for the civilian population, bought in a store.
