On Sept. 17, the Russian military shelled civilian infrastructure in Ukraine’s Velika Pysarivka community in Sumy Oblast with artillery, the region's military administration reported on Facebook.

As a result of the attack, a 47-year-old man was killed in the yard of his home and a 40-year-old woman was injured.
