As reported, Russian troops continue to fire from their territory on the border areas of Sumy and Chernihiv regions. According to Rostyslav Smirnov, a non-staff adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, such attacks are launched because the Ukrainian defenders start to counterattack in certain areas, and the Russians are trying to divert their attention to another direction.
