We show how to derive the equations of light propagation in the gravitational field of uniformly moving mass monopoles without formulating and integrating the differential equations of light propagation in that field. The well-known equations of light propagation in the gravitational field of a motionless mass monopole are combined with a suitable Lorentz transformation. The possibility of generalizing this technique for the more complicated case of uniformly moving body of arbitrary multipole structure is discussed.
