Sumy Oblast is located on Ukraine's northeastern border with Russia. It has been the target of daily Russian shelling and attacks across the border since parts of the oblast were liberated from Russian troops in early April 2022, after a month-long occupation.

Russian forces shelled four communities in Sumy Oblast on April 8, firing more than 79 rounds from various types of weapons.
