The attacks hit the communities of Bilopillia, Esman, Svesa, Krasnopillia, Seredyna-Buda, Yunakivka, and Myropillia.

No casualties or damage to civilian infrastructure were reported.

Russian forces attacked the region with artillery, mines, and drones, firing at the Sumy border 11 times and causing 38 explosions.
