The reburial of the remains of the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II, will be held in St. Petersburg next February, according to Yuri Yarov, who heads the special government commission investigating the deaths of the royal family. Yarov said that in the near future, the Prosecutor General’s office will present the government with the results of the legal case opened by that office on the murder of the Romanovs by the Bolsheviks in 1918. After the government hears the report, the final procedure of the reburial will be decided upon.
Boris Yeltsin said that he would personally like to see the remains of the Romanov family buried in St. Petersburg. Yeltsin was joined by St. Petersburg mayor Anatoly Sobchak, who said that he shared filmmaker Nikita Mikhalkov’s idea of arranging a special ceremonial procession which would carry the body of the last Tsar to St. Petersburg from the place of his execution, Yekaterinburg.
