The Russian military launched 25 attacks at nine border communities in Sumy Oblast on June 28, the Sumy Oblast Military Administration reported on the Telegram messaging app.

Russian attacks targeted the communities of Esmanska, Myropilska, Krasnopilska, Hlukhivska, Bilopilska, Velykopysarivska, Shalyhynska, Yunakivska, Khotinska, according to the administration.

In the Esmanska community, a power line was damaged as a result of shelling and in the Myropilska community, a home and a tractor were damaged due to mortar attacks. No casualties among the civilian population were reported.
