The communities of Bilopillia, Esman, Khotin, Krasnopillia, Velyka Pysarivka, Druzhbiv, Novoslobidske, Miropillia, and Yunakivka came under fire, the administration said.
In addition to artillery shelling, Russian forces attacked the Sumy border with machine guns, grenade launchers, mortar shelling, and tank shelling.
