Separately on Saturday, Ukrainian authorities said air-launched Russian missiles hit two locations near the Russian border in Ukraine’s northern Sumy region.

A border guard was wounded by the strikes on the Myropilske and Khotin municipalities, local governor Dmytro Zhyvytskyi wrote in a post on the Telegram messaging app.

Reuters was not able to immediately confirm details of the report.

Russian forces fully withdrew from Sumy region in early April after advancing into parts of the region at the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Russia’s defense ministry said high-precision missiles had destroyed Ukrainian aircraft at airfields in the Artsyz, Odessa and Voznesensk regions, and that its Iskander missiles had hit US and European equipment near Kharkiv.
