The head of the Sumy region, Dmytro Zhyvytsky, used Telegram to say that burial sites for about 70 dead soldiers are being prepared in the cemetery. Following the strikes on Okhtyrka, this information was gathered.
Dmytro posted pictures of burnt buildings with caved-in walls and rescue personnel searching amid the wreckage. According to Ukraine, 350 civilians have died as a result of the conflict. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, stated on Monday that NATO and the western public’s silence on the ongoing situation in Donbas has resulted in a political and humanitarian disaster in Europe.

According to Zakharova, Russia did not initiate the conflict, but they will ensure that it is brought to a conclusion.
