It became known who attacked the Russian plane at the Belarusian airfield Machulishchi

The saboteurs were able to leave Belarus after a successful attack.

Machulishchi is a small village in the Minsk region of Belarus, where an air base and a military airfield are located, actively exploited by Russian invaders. The Russians store here their MiG-31K fighter jets (the carrier of the Kinzhal hypersonic missiles), and each rise into the air is accompanied by an air alert throughout Ukraine. MiGs are often lifted into the sky along with the Russian A-50U early warning aircraft.

On February 26, explosions were heard at the Machulishchi airfield. It soon became known that a Russian A-50 airborne had been attacked.

According to the Belarus Gayun, this plane flew to Belarus on January 3, 2023 and stayed there for 54 days, making 12 sorties. Prior to that, the last time the aircraft flew to Belarus was on February 24, 2022.

The BYPOL initiative said the plane was badly damaged and “definitely won’t fly anywhere.” It was reported that the front and central parts of the aircraft, avionics and radar antenna were damaged.

The Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation have only 9 such aircraft, and only 6 of them have been improved (with modification “y”).

“According to the information of Belarusian Gayun, today’s attack by Belarusian partisans on the AWACS aircraft A-50U of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Machulishchi was carried out with the help of two drones. … “Belarusian Gayun” also has information that Lukashenko’s security forces found a bag with drone control panels,” says in the message “BG” in Telegram.

The head of BYPOL, Alexander Azarov, in a commentary to Belsat, said that the Belarusians who organized the sabotage had successfully escaped and were abroad.

“These were drones. The participants in the operation are Belarusians, participants in the Peramoga plan, and now they are safe outside the country. Everyone has left. Let them now look for the wind in the field,” he said.
