On June 20, Russian occupation forces once again shelled the border communities of the Sumy region, resulting in the destruction of civilian infrastructure.
This was reported by the regional military administration.
Thus, during the day, the Russians fired 14 times at the border: a total of 109 explosions were recorded. Yunakivska, Krasnopilska, Khotynska, Bilopilska, Seredyno-Budska, Novoslobidska, and Velykopysarivska communities were hit.
According to the JFO, the occupants fired from artillery, mortars, and grenade launchers.
In the Yunakivska community, 2 private households and one outbuilding were damaged as a result of one of the shelling.
And in the Bilopilska community, artillery shelling damaged a private house and a civilian Gazelle car. In other cases, there were no casualties or damage.
The occupiers regularly shell the Sumy region, although they retreated from it in the spring of 2022. Russia still maintains some of its units in the border areas of the Bryansk and Kursk regions. However, Ukrainian officials have not yet reported on the creation of strike forces in Russia that could again attack the Sumy region.
