Public broadcaster Suspilne reported a series of explosions in Sumy, located northeast of the capital Kyiv. Municipal authorities stated that water supplies had been temporarily halted as a result of the attacks.

Reuters could not independently verify the reported drone strikes.

The Sumy region has faced frequent shelling from Russian positions across the border, with Russian forces conducting a cross-border incursion in May in the nearby Kharkiv region. Ukrainian officials have noted periodic troop buildups near the Sumy region since then.
