The owner of a car that exploded in the center of the Russian-occupied town of Melitopol on Tuesday died in hospital from his injuries, the Russian-backed regional administration said in an article by Telegram.
Two other people, a woman and a child, were also injured, according to Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the pro-Russian military-civilian administration of the Zaporizhzhia region.
All three were hospitalized, he said.
The explosion was carried out with an improvised explosive device, according to Rogov, and it happened near a market.
Rogov said a local pro-Russian entrepreneur was the target of the alleged attack.
CNN is unable to independently verify these claims.
