The Russian military launched attacks against four border communities in Sumy Oblast on June 28, the Sumy Oblast Military Administration reported on Telegram.

Russian shelling struck the communities of Bilopillia, Krasnopillia, Myropillia, and Yunakiv, according to the administration.

A total of 36 explosions were recorded across the four communities, the post said, resulting from mortar attacks, artillery shelling, and mines.

According to preliminary reports from the communities, the attacks caused no casualties or damage to civilian infrastructure.

The same four communities came under fire earlier this week, when Russians attacked the border on June 25.

Sumy Oblast lies on Ukraine's northeastern border with Russia. Since Ukraine liberated parts of the region from  occupation in April 2022, Russian troops have targeted the oblast with daily attacks.

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."
