Russian forces shelled Sumy Oblast multiple times on July 14, firing at eight communities along the border and causing 110 explosions, the Sumy Oblast Military Administration reported on Telegram.

The Russian military fired on the communities of Bilopillia, Esman, Khotin, Krasnopillia, Hlukhiv, Druzhbiv, Seredyna-Buda, and Novoslobidske. Throughout the day, Russian assailed the border communities with mortar, artillery, and grenade launcher attacks.

In Seredyna-Buda, Russian mortar attacks damaged three residential buildings.

Artillery shelling in Novoslobidske damaged two private houses.
