The situation in the Sumy region

After Ukrainian Forces completely drove Russian occupiers out of the Sumy region in the spring of last year, the enemy almost daily shells the region from the territory of the Russian Federation. Border areas of the region are most frequently targeted.

As previously reported by the regional military administration, on September 1, during the past day, the Russians carried out 22 shelling attacks on the region's border. This included 147 explosions in border territories and populated areas of the Sumy region.

"The shelling affected the communities of Seredyna-Buda, Novoslobidske, Krasnopilska, Myropilska, Znob-Novhorodska, Khotynska, and Bilopilska," the RMA added.
