The Russian military fired on the communities of Bilopillia, Krasnopillia, Myropillia, and Khotin. Throughout the day, Russia assailed the border communities with artillery and mortar, and used a drone to drop explosives onto the town of Krasnopillia.
Krasnopillia and surrounding areas experienced the most intense attacks over the past 24 hours, with 13 explosions recorded in the area. The town of Krasnopillia is located 42 km away from Sumy, the regional center, and has a population of around 7,700 people.

Shelling is a daily occurrence for the communities near Ukraine's northeastern border with Russia. Residents in the region's vulnerable border settlements experience multiple attacks per day.
