Russian subversive and reconnaissance groups are currently the most active in the Sumy region. They try to cross the state border of Ukraine within the region several times a week.

This was reported by Andrii Demchenko, spokesman for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, on the We Are Ukraine TV channel. According to him, although no such attempts have been recorded in other regions, the threat exists.

"Sumy region is the area where the enemy is most active in its subversive activities. It is impossible to say that enemy subversive reconnaissance groups are exposed every day, but with a certain frequency, maybe several times a week," the spokesman noted.

"Kharkiv region used to be an active area as well. Recently, there have been no attempts to enter Chernihiv region. But despite everything, the threat does not disappear for either Chernihiv or Kharkiv regions. Our soldiers are well aware of this threat," Demchenko said.

On April 25, Ukrainian border guards clashed with a Russian subversive group in the Sumy region. The border guards discovered an enemy ambush with more than a dozen saboteurs in one of the directions. Artillery and mortar crews were involved in the firefight. As a result of the clash, the enemy group retreated.

On March 31, Ukrainian soldiers stopped an attempt of an enemy sabotage and reconnaissance group to infiltrate near the village of Stara Huta in the Sumy region.

In March, the SSU detained saboteurs recruited by the Russian FSB. They tried to blow up a railroad line in the Poltava region but were caught red-handed.
