Russia Moved a Record 5200 Railway Cars Loaded With Military Gear in a Week
Double the previous all-time high
Editor’s note: The Russian military has published an infographic stating that it moved 5200 railway cars loaded with military gear in a single week. The highest previous number a Russian military blogger ever recalls is 2600.
Machine translated from Russian.
Another week has passed since the previous review and again I return to the topic of the transfer of Russian troops to Belarus and the border areas.
First, about the transportation record. In the newspaper “Red Star” in the weekly report on the activities of the army published a record number of cars for military transportation – 5200 or more than 100 echelons. In my memory, this number has never been more than 2600 wagons per week. Feel the swing.
Moreover, the preparations for the Allied Resolve-2022 exercises had already been completed and transportation from Russia had been stopped. On February 10, the active phase of the exercise began.
To find out the details of the record achievement, let’s carefully plunge into the quagmire of social networks. Ideologicals, don’t read any further!
On the territory of the Western Military District, units of the 14th Army Corps, the 2nd, 6th, 41st Combined Armies and of the 1st Tank Army are actively gathering in the border (Smolensk, Bryansk, Oryol, Kursk, Belgorod and Voronezh) regions.
The transfer of units of the 200th Motorized Rifle Brigade of the 14th Army Corps of the Northern Fleet has been completed:
Units of the 104th Airborne Assault Regiment of the 76th Airborne Assault Division, the 25th Motorized Rifle Brigade, and the 9th Artillery Brigade were transferred from the 6th Army. On one echelon, the installation of 2S3 from the 138th Motorized Rifle Brigade is visible.
Echelon 138th MSBR
The videos with the 9th Artillery Brigade and the 25th Motorized Rifle Brigade have already been removed, so only screenshots:
In general, the border with NATO countries and Finland is seriously exposed. And the strength of the Balts should not be underestimated:
From the 1st Tank Army, in addition to the previously deployed, units of the 2nd Motorized Rifle and 4th Tank Divisions, the 27th Motorized Rifle, the 6th Tank, the 45th and 288th Artillery, the 79th Rocket Artillery and the 202nd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade are transferred. So far, only the 423rd Motorized Rifle Regiment of the 4th Tank Division has not appeared in transportation.
At the Rzhava station (Kursk region), a train with tanks and combat vehicles of the 467th training center and the 333rd combat training center of the Ground Forces was unloaded:

The 51st Parachute Regiment of the 106th Airborne Division was transferred to the Smolensk region:
Echelons with units of the 21st Motorized Rifle and 385th Artillery Brigades arrive from the 2nd Combined Arms Army. https://www.tiktok.com/@58evgecha56/video/7062640414368517378
Echelons with units of the 74th Motorized Rifle Brigade arrive from the 41st Combined Arms Army:
Somewhere along the way, echelons of the 11th Airborne Assault Brigade from the Eastern Military District.
The transfers in the Southern Military District are of the nature of “Brownian motion” and are unbearable for my meager mind. I will collect my thoughts, I will write separately.
These are disturbing observations. Take care of yourself.
