On May 26, an air defense missile shot down a Russian cruise missile over Sumy.
Border forces are also under daily shelling in the region. Dmytro Zhyvytskyi, the head of Sumy regional military administration, told about it on Channel 5.
He reminded that the enemy fired at the Bilopil community, and earlier they fired at the Seredino-Bud community and fired mortars at the Znob-Novgorod community.
No one was injured. There is also no information on the destruction of critical infrastructure.
“People are frightened and dissatisfied. These shellings are not aimed at military facilities or critical infrastructure. Probably, this is to destabilize the situation in the border areas. For almost two months, they have been shelling the border areas of Sumy region every day,” Zhyvytskyi said.
According to him, there are many destroyed houses. Almost 50 houses in Krasnopillya were damaged.
There is also no information about the increase of Russian troops, which could break through the border with Sumy region. He assured that the repetition of what happened on February 24 at the beginning of the invasion could no longer be, and the state of preparation is much higher than it was before the war.
Also in the region demining along roads, roadsides, forest strips in the liberated settlements proceeds.
Zhyvytskyi added that there is a problem with fuel in the Sumy region, but it is not critical. He called for less use of conventional cars to save money. Commenting on the information about the work of public transport in Sumy only during rush hours, he said that the city has a lot of gas-filled transport, as well as electric transport. Therefore, according to him, this issue is still being worked out with local authorities.
