The situation in the Sumy region

After the liberation of the Sumy region from Russian forces last spring, the occupiers have regularly shelled the border areas with aviation, artillery, and mortars. As a result, the regional authorities decided to create a 5-kilometer buffer zone along the border with Russia this year.

Recently, Russian artillery shelled the Velyka Pysarivka community in the Sumy region, resulting in the death of a 47-year-old man, and a 40-year-old woman was injured in the attack.

Later, Russian occupiers launched artillery strikes on the territory of the Vorozhbyanska community, and a local resident was injured during the shelling.
