The Zyabrovka airport is located in the Gomel region which borders Ukraine. Information about the explosions was confirmed by several sources, the bloggers added.

They recalled that earlier, the Belarusian Defence Ministry reported on air defence and air force combat shooting exercises, but it is not known whether the explosions were related to them.

So far, there is no confirmation if these explosions are connected to any military drills conducted by the Russian and Belarus armies on Belarus territory. Ziabrauka airfield is used by Russian aviation in the war against Ukraine.
