On the night of 24 March, Russians attacked Sumy Region with Su-35 fighter jets. More than 10 guided bombs were dropped on the region, Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat said during a telethon.

He said that the Russians started attacking in the evening - they fired two X-59 missiles at Odesa Region.

"The attack continued from the north of our country. About 10 Su-35 aircraft, Russia's newest fighter jet, attacked Sumy Region with guided bombs... This is an extremely big threat when guided aerial bombs, planning bombs, can fly far away and the planes are not within the kill zone of our air defence," Ihnat said.

According to him, more than 10 guided bombs attacked facilities in Sumy Region.

"The losses are being clarified. They will probably be announced by the military administrations," the Air Force spokesman said.
