Lot of work to do investigating killing of Emperor Nicholas II, family members - Russian Investigative Committee
Moscow, July 17, Interfax - Investigators looking into the killing of Russian Emperor Nicholas II and his family intend to determine all the people involved and qualify their actions in accordance with the Criminal Code.
The investigators working on this case "have a lot of work to do," Russian Investigative Committee spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko told Interfax on Friday.
"The results of the judicial evaluations ordered earlier are pending. A procedural decision will be made and a legal evaluation will be given only after the remaining expert resolutions are received and the necessary investigative actions are completed," Petrenko said.
Marina Molodtsova, a senior investigator on especially important cases under the head of the Investigative Committee, told the Izvestia newspaper that some of the people who were involved in the killing of the Romanov family have been determined and "work in this direction is underway."
Petrenko told Interfax in summer 2018 that a new comprehensive study had confirmed the authenticity of the remains of Emperor Nicolas II and his family, who were killed in Yekaterinburg 100 years ago.
Emperor Nicholas II and his family were shot and killed in Yekaterinburg in the early hours of July 17, 2018, in accordance with a decision made by the Bolshevik-led executive committee of the Urals region's council of worker, peasant, and soldier deputies.
In July 1991, the remains of nine people were found in a mass grave discovered on the Staraya Koptyakovskaya road near Yekaterinburg. Investigators believe they belong to the tsar and members of his family: Nicholas II, his wife, their daughters Olga, Tatyana, and Anastasia, as well as their doctor and servants.
The remains of the imperial family were buried in a sepulcher in the Peter and Paul Cathedral in St. Petersburg in 1998 following forensic tests.
The remains of another two people were found during archeological excavations conducted south of the first grave site on July 29, 2007. Numerous expert evaluations indicate that the remains belong to the children of Nicholas II, Alexey and Maria.
