Ukrainian troops are mopping up in Sumy Oblast, a northern region of Ukraine from which invading Russian troops have now completely retreated after their defeat at Kyiv, Sumy Oblast Governor Dmytro Zhyvytskyy said in his Telegram channel on April 5.
Zhyvytskyy, in particular, noted that the Russian invaders were abandoning their dead in Ukraine and not collecting the corpses. He called on the residents of Sumy Oblast to be careful and reminded that there is a ban on going into forests.
“Concerning the situation with humanitarian aid: we continue to receive it from all over the world! We thank everyone who is involved in making this possible," Zhyvytskyy said.
He also detailed the situation in the oblast.
The villages and towns, cities that have suffered the most from invaders will be the first to get everything they need – humanitarian aid, construction materials, medicines. Personally, I visit these villages a lot, I am fully aware of the situation. What the (invaders) did is beyond common sense.
The area continues to come to recover from the (Russian) invasion. At least three tortured Ukrainians have already been found at a former enemy camp. Civilians.
We are mapping out safe routes between communities in the district. Planned operations and surgery resumed in hospitals.
The northern part of the district is being cleared of the enemy. As for Romny itself – the city is operating as normal.
Trostyanets, Okhtyrka and Velyka Pysarivka: the process of bringing communities back to life continues in full swing. There are a lot of problems, but we’re responding to all of them and are continuing to work.
On April 4, the Russians began an active withdrawal from the Sumy Oblast. Local sources say the invaders unleashed terror in the region.
