Russian forces attacked six communities in Sumy Oblast, the Sumy Oblast Military Administration reported on May 5. More than 22 explosions were recorded.

The communities of Khotin, Yunakivka, Bilopillia, Krasnopillia, Velyka Pysarivka, and Esman came under fire.

Throughout the day, Russia assailed the border communities with mortar, artillery, mines, and drone attacks.

No casualties were reported.

During the early hours of May 6, the Sumy Military Administration reported that Russian forces had carried out drone attacks on the region's energy infrastructure, leading to partial blackouts in the area.

An attack against the region on April 29 damaged a school in Yampil.
