Death Toll Rises to Four in Attack at Ukrainian City of Kharkiv

KIEV – The death toll from Sunday’s bomb attack on a rally in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv rose to four on Tuesday, according to Ukrainian lawmaker Anton Gueraschenko.

The legislator wrote on his Facebook account that student Nikolai Melnichuk, 18, died Tuesday morning and noted that nine more people remain hospitalized for injuries caused by the attack in Ukraine’s second-largest city.

Earlier, the Security Service announced that four arrests had been made in connection with the device that exploded during a peaceful rally to commemorate the first anniversary of the non-violent uprising which overthrew former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

At least one of those killed in the blast was a policeman, officials said.

Kharkiv is the largest Russian-speaking city in eastern Ukraine, with 1.5 million inhabitants.

In April last year, it was the scene of demonstrations by pro-Russian separatists similar to those that occurred in neighboring Donetsk and Luhansk as a prelude to the civil conflict that later broke out in those two regions.

Although pro-Russian separatists seized control of several public buildings in Kharkiv, deployment of government troops and reluctance by the city’s population to join the rebellion spared the city the same fate as the two neighboring regions, which are torn by a bloody war.
