Russian forces shelled five communities in Sumy Oblast on Nov. 16, firing at least 10 times over the course of the day, according to the Sumy Oblast Military Administration.

The communities of Krasnopillia, Myropillia, Velyka Pysarivka, Esman, and Druzhbivka came under fire. The administration recorded 70 explosions throughout the day.

No casualties or damages have been reported.
