However, they would not have achieved territorial gains.

According to information from Kyiv, the Sumy and Chernihiv regions in the north-east of Ukraine were bombed from the Russian lands. Ukrainian border guards reported seven attacks using heavy machine guns, automatic grenade launchers, tube artillery, and rockets. The village of Shustka near the border in the Sumy region was bombarded with mortars for more than an hour. But there were no casualties. The reports were not initially verifiable independently.

After the Russian offensive on February 24, Moscow forces initially occupied northern Ukraine. After heavy losses, they withdrew to their own lands or to Belarus. The fighting turned south to the Donbass. The Russian Defense Ministry has also reported missile attacks on northern Ukraine in the past few days.
