In total, officials recorded 176 explosions from mortars, artillery, mines, and grenade launchers in the eleven settlements.

The individual who was killed was a resident of the Putivlska community. He was born in 1971.

Sumy Oblast is located at Ukraine’s northeastern border with Russia and 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.
