Open source reporting confirms that Russian-made BRDM-2M 4X4 armoured vehicles were delivered to Thilawa Port in Yangon, Myanmar on 24 January 2022.

Myanmar Witness has tracked the route of the vessel as it left Vladivostok, Russia and arrived in the port just south of Yangon.

Satellite imagery confirms the location and time of the vessel’s presence, and matches images obtained by Myanmar Witness showing the vehicles at the port.

The vehicles have been used since the coup by Myanmar’s Army in various locations throughout Myanmar as security and transport assets.
