The fifteen-year-old who was injured in the bombing at the rally in Kharkiv on Sunday has died in hospital, the city's administration announced on Monday, raising the death toll to three.

The city prosecutor's office announced that it has no evidence linking the Kharkiv Partisans group to the bombing despite earlier accusations by advisor to Ukraine's Minister of Internal Affairs and Verkhovna Rada deputy Anton Geraschenko, who stated that the Ukrainian government has evidence linking the group to the bombing.

"Today we have no direct evidence linking this group to the terrorist attack," the Kharkiv region's Prosecutor, Yuriy Danilchenko announced on Monday.

A representative of the group, Filipp Ekozyants, confirmed that the group has no connection to the attack to a local news site.

"We do not plan actions in places where gatherings of civilians take place, no matter what their political views are," Ekozyants announced.

Two people originally died on Sunday and around 10 were injured after a bombing took place at a rally in Kharkiv in support of the Kiev-led military operation against southeastern Ukraine's independence supporters.
