Mazyr (Mozyr' in Russian) is in Belorussia and was subordinate to the Mozyr Division of the Vinnitsa Strategic Rocket Force Army.

A group of three possible canisters was imaged in June 1977 in front of the clerestory payload assembly building. Each canister was approximatelymeters in diameter and appeared to have two light-toned bands, one near each end. The location of these canisters near the MIRV-associated payload assembly building and their size suggest that they are possibly for the fully assembled SS-20 MIRV payload.
