BELARUS - The head of the Ukrainian Railways Alexander Kamyshin has confirmed that there is no longer any railway connection between Ukraine and Belarus, "thanks to Belarusian railway workers" who decided to launch what they have called a "railway war" by sabotaging Russian equipment in various ways.
Fighters affiliated with Azov also detonated a key railway bridge with a box full of repurposed TNT charges from a DKR-4 mine clearing hose in order to disrupt Russian supply lines near the Ukrainian-Belarus border.
Russian stated news denounced the what they call 'act of terrorism' carried out by the organized group against the Belarusian Railway infrastructure.
The general prosecutor has stated that signaling facilities and other transport equipment have been rendered 'unusable'.
The BYPOL group, which includes former security officers that support the Belarus opposition stated on Tuesday that acts of sabotage has targeted the railway system within Belarus and disrupted the movement of military trains in the country.
BYPOL wrote in a Telegram message, "Belarusians, today our country is drawn into a criminal and bloody war with the fraternal Ukrainian people on the side of the aggressor - the Russian Federation".
"It is our duty and in our power to do real things to stop it, free ourselves from the occupation of Russian troops and restore the good name of our ancestors. 'Rail war' is the knowledge that we inherited, this is what we can do and what each of us can do".
