Russian subversive groups most active in Sumy region – border guards

The enemy continues to use its subversive reconnaissance groups in the border area, mostly in the Sumy region.

Andriy Demchenko, spokesman for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, said this at a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

"We see that the RF is trying to use its subversive reconnaissance groups, mostly in the Sumy sector. Enemy subversive reconnaissance groups were also spotted in the Kharkiv region. They are the least active in the Chernihiv region. But we remember well the beginning of 2023, when enemy subversive reconnaissance groups were most active in the Chernihiv sector, so this area is also under close scrutiny," Demchenko said.

The spokesman said that the enemy keeps shelling the border with all types of weapons.
