Russian forces attacked six border areas and settlements of Sumy Oblast on April 4, firing 15 times and causing at least 83 explosions, the Sumy Oblast Military Administration reported.

The communities of Bilopillia, Krasnopillia, Velyka Pysarivka, Putyvl, Esman, and Seredyna-Buda were targeted.

The Russian military struck the communities using artillery fire, aerial missile strikes, FPV drones, and mortar shelling, while also dropping mines.

No casualties or damage to civilian infrastructure was reported.

The town of Bilopillia, with a pre-war population of about 16,000 residents, experienced the most attacks, with 15 explosions recorded in the area. The community is located eight kilometers south and 25 kilometers west of the Ukiraine-Russia border.

Residents in Sumy Oblast have been experiencing daily threats of shelling, but attacks have intensified in recent weeks, prompting large-scale evacuations from the region.
