Russian forces shelled ten communities in Sumy Oblast on June 17, firing over 21 times at the border areas, the Sumy Oblast Military Administration reported.

The administration said on their official Telegram page that Russia shelled the Esman, Myropillia, Bilopillia, Velyka Pysarivka, Druzhbivka, Khotin, Krasnopillia, Shalyhyne, Znob-Novhorodske, and Seredyno-Buda communities.

Artillery and mortar attacks were reported in Bilopilska and Myropilska communities, damaging a TV tower in Bilopillia and a private household, two shops, a power line, the village council building, as well as an apiary in Myropilska.

Officials recorded 119 strikes with mortars, artillery, mines, and grenade launchers in the settlements.

Sumy Oblast is located at Ukraine’s northeastern border with Russia. It has been the target of daily Russian attacks across the border since parts of the oblast were liberated from Russian control in early April 2022.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
