Russian forces struck 10 communities along the Sumy Oblast border in 27 separate attacks on Feb. 29, injuring one person, the regional military administration reported.

The communities of Yunakivka, Khotin, Bilopillia, Vorozhba, Krasnopillia, Seredyna-Buda, Znob-Novhorodske, Velyka Pysarivka, Shalyhyne, and Druzhbiv came under attack. More than 157 explosions were recorded.

A civilian was injured in Vorozhba as a result of the shelling. Regional authorities also reported that several warehouses belonging to a local manufacturing company also caught fire.

Throughout the day, Russia assailed the border communities with mortar, artillery, drones, and unguided bombs. At least 13 mines were also dropped onto the Bilopillia community, according to the Ukrainian military.
