He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"The border of the aggressor country is different from the border with Belarus. On the border with Belarus, the situation remains fully controlled by the State Border Guard Service and other units that reinforce this area. We do not record any unusual situations on this section of the border," said Demchenko.

The spokesman emphasized that the Defense Forces units are constantly detecting and counteracting Russian subversive reconnaissance groups.

"Russia is shelling border communities from its territory on a daily basis. In particular, Russians are constantly shelling the territories of Sumy, Chernihiv and Kharkiv regions. They also frequently use subversive reconnaissance groups. Thus, attempts of subversive reconnaissance groups to infiltrate are most often recorded in the Sumy region. However, our soldiers understand the complexity of the situation and are constantly training to counter such enemy sabotage," he added.

  • Russian saboteurs tried to cross the state border into the Sumy region on the night of October 12. They planned to move to a civilian critical infrastructure facility.
  • On November 7, the spokesperson for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, Andriy Demchenko, said that Russia is using various weapons to shell the north and is trying to infiltrate Ukraine with the help of sabotage and reconnaissance groups.
  • On November 7, Lieutenant General Serhiy Nayev said that Russian sabotage and reconnaissance groups were trying to enter the territories of Chernihiv and Sumy regions bordering Russia 9-10 times a month
