Russian troops used mines to target the Yunakivka community, injuring two civilians. The wounded are being treated at the hospital, according to the administration. A tractor hit a landmine earlier in the day while cultivating the field in the same community, the military said. The driver was unharmed.
Sumy Oblast is located in Ukraine's northeast adjacent to the Russian border. It has been the target of daily Russian shelling and cross-border attacks since the occupied parts of the oblast were liberated in early April 2022.
