The Ukrainian military have shot down a Russian missile in Sumy Oblast that was flying towards the city of Poltava, the head of Sumy regional administration, Dmytro Zhyvytskyy, said in a Telegram post on April 7.

According to Zhyvytskyy’s message, debris from the weapon fell somewhere in the village of Lypova Dolyna.

Explosives experts have also found and defused 27 unexploded fragments of a Russian cluster air bomb near Romny, the official said.

“In Sloboda (near Konotop), a Russian high-explosive air bomb was found and neutralized; it landed in a private garden, 300 meters away from residential buildings,” Zhyvytskyy said.
