Zhyvytskyi noted that Russians shelled the village of Dmytrivka, Okhtyrka District, at 05:30 a.m. No casualties were reported, but a civilian detached house was hit.
A reminder that the Ukrainian defense forces liberated Sumy Region from Russian invaders in early April 2022. However, Russian troops continue to open fire on the region from the territory of Russia almost every day.
