Russian forces struck the communities of Seredyno-Buda, Novoslobidske, and Bilopillia.

Russia used artillery to attack the settlements 18 times.

No casualties were reported, but Russia’s shelling of the Seredyno-Buda community damaged an apartment in a high-rise building, farm buildings, and a power line.

Sumy Oblast, which borders Russia in the northeast, has been under daily Russian shelling since the Ukrainian army liberated it in April 2022.
