Russian shelling wounded a 17-year-old in the village of Studenok in Sumy Oblast, the oblast governor, Dmytro Zhyvytskyi, said in a Telegram post on Jan. 21.

Ten shells exploded near residents’ homes in the village, the governor reported.

The teenager barely escaped death as the shelling completely destroyed his house, where he was staying when the attack started, Zhyvytskyi said.

He was hospitalized in Chuhuiv with multiple shrapnel wounds, but his state is stable.

Since Russian forces withdrew from northern Ukrainian Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts in spring, they have repeatedly been shelling these regions' areas that border Russia.
