Sumi in northern Ukraine had already been attacked by the Russians on the eve of the war and was only able to drive them out of the city at the cost of tough street fighting. The siege lasted until April 4, when, according to a redesign of Russian strategy, the Russian troops stationed there were also withdrawn from the country and sent back to Donbass.
