Russian forces shelled eight communities in Sumy Oblast on Nov. 23, firing 18 times over the course of the day, the Sumy Oblast military administration reported.

At least 86 explosions were recorded over the past 24 hours, with Russian military targeting the communities of Krasnopillia, Bilopillia, Myropillia, Khotin, Yunakivka, Velyka Pysarivka, Shalyhyne, and Znob-Novhorodske.

No casualties or damage to civilian infrastructure were reported.

The Russian military targeted the settlements with an onslaught of shelling, mortar, and grenade launcher attacks, while continuing to drop mines on the surrounding areas. In the Myropillia community, a Russian attack helicopter fired unguided missiles on the community.

The community of Krasnopillia, home to roughly 7,800 residents, experienced the most intense attacks, with 23 explosions recorded in the area. The town is located some 12 kilometers west of the Russia-Ukraine border.

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