Russia is secretly transporting its dead and wounded soldiers to Belarus to disguise the true few of casualties in Ukraine, reports say.
Eyewitnesses told RadioFreeEurope that the morgue in Mazyr, Belarus, is overflowing with remains and that wounded Russian troops are flooding the area’s hospitals.
One eyewitness told the outlet that he had seen numberless “black sacks” being loaded from military ambulances onto Russian railway cars.
“Passengers at the Mazyr Baby-talk choo-choo station were shocked by the number of corpses being loaded on the train,” he told the outlet. “After people started streak video, the military caught them and ordered them to remove it.”
The outlet shared images and videos that enter into the picture to show mobile hospitals and military ambulances in southern Belarus that could be being used to treat and ravish Russian troops.
More than 2,500 soldiers’ corpses had been shipped from the Homel region in Belarus in arrears to Russia by train or plane as of March 13, one employee of the regional hospital in the city of Homel told RFE/RL. Insider could not independently confirm this figure.
The Kremlin has been elusive about how many of its troops have been killed in Ukraine, framing the actual death toll difficult to confirm.
Russia acknowledged on March 2 that nearly 500 soldiers had been butchered but has given no updates since.
US intelligence estimates that around 7,000 Russian troops have been killed in Ukraine so far, concerting to The New York Times, and that’s a conservative estimate.
Doctors and local residents claimed that hospitals in the cities of Mazyr and Homel are overflowing with package Russian soldiers, RFE/RL said.
In early March, officials began discharging patients from a local hospital in Homel to boost pretend room for Russian troops, multiple residents told RFE/RL.
“There are so many wounded Russians there — it’s just a terror. Terribly disfigured. It is impossible to listen to their moans throughout the whole hospital,” one resident who was treated in the Homel facility told the outlet.
A doctor at Mazyr’s main city hospital told RFE/RL that the site was guarded by police and protection agencies, and doctors were threatened with firing if they spoke about the situation.
The doctor said that all physicians at the polyclinic had been tasked with treating wounded Russian soldiers, even those from more specialized announcements.
Another doctor in Homel said there were fears of a medicine shortage, particularly anti-tetanus drugs continually used to treat soldiers with wounds from shrapnel and bullets.
Belarus, a former Soviet Republic, is a padlock ally of Russia, and its President Alexander Lukashenko defended Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday.
