        Russian Orthodox Church still doubts authenticity of "Yekaterinburg
        remains"

        MOSCOW. July 17 (Interfax) - The Russian Orthodox Church still
        doubts the
        authenticity of the remains found near Yekaterinburg five years ago.
        Experts believe these are the remains of Russia's last emperor
        Nicholas II
        and his family.

        "The attitude to the remains has not changed, because no new
        information
        has been obtained," head of the Synod Commission on Canonization
        Metropolitan Yuvenaly told Interfax on Thursday.

        The Metropolitan said he knew nothing about any serious research to
        prove
        the remains' authenticity. "Apparently, the attention of the
        scientific
        community and the government to the problem has declined now that
        the
        remains are buried," he said.

        The church is still ready to reconsider the authenticity of the
        "Yekaterinburg remains" in case of further studies, he stressed.

        The Bolsheviks shot Nicholas II and members of his family and circle
        in the
        Ipatyev House near Yekaterinburg in 1918. Human remains were found
        on the
        outskirts of the city, which experts identified as the Romanovs.

        The remains were buried in the Czarist burial vault of the Peter and
        Paul
        Cathedral in St. Petersburg on July 17, 1998, in the presence of
        Russia's
        first president Boris Yeltsin, statesmen and descendants of the
        Romanovs.

        Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Alexy II did not take part in the
        ceremony, because the Russian Orthodox Church doubted the
        authenticity of
        the Yekaterinburg remains.

        Several years later, these doubts were confirmed by Japanese
        scientists,
        who analyzed a drop of sweat found on the clothes of Nicholas II,
        and hair,
        nails and bone fragments of his brother, Prince Georgy.

        They also studied samples of blood of Tikhon Kulikovsky-Romanov, son
        of
        Princess Olga - the youngest sister of the last emperor, who died in
        1993.
        Results of the tests were compared with DNA from the Yekaterinburg
        remains
        and failed to match its genetic characteristics. [RU EUROPE EEU EMRG

        Poll shows many Russians feel sorry about murder of Nicholas II

        MOSCOW. July 17 (Interfax) - Many Russians feel sorry about the
        murder of
        Russia's last emperor Nicholas II and his family, says a poll
        conducted by
        ROMIR Monitoring.

        Forty-two percent of respondents called this event "a bloody, evil
        deed by
        the Bolshevik regime," ROMIR sociologists told Interfax.

        One out of five respondents (21%) believes that in the situation,
        the
        Soviet regime had no choice, and another 21% believe it happened
        because of
        the chaos and lack of coordination that plagued Russia at the time.

        CHURCH-CUM-MONUMENT ON THE BLOOD CONSECRATED IN YEKATERINBURG

        YEKATERINBURG, July 16 (RIA Novosti-Urals correspondent Gulnara
        Kalinina) -
        The Church-cum-Monument on the Blood has been consecrated in
        Yekaterinburg
        (the Urals). It has been built on the place of the shooting down of
        the
        tsarist family. Reporters were told about it on Wednesday in the
        press
        service of the governor of the Sverdlovsk region.

        With the blessing of Patriarch Alexis II of Moscow and All Russia
        the
        divine liturgy was conducted by Metropolitan Yuvenaly of Krutitsy
        and Kolomna.

        During the celebrations, Olga Kulikovskaya-Romanova, the wife of the
        nephew
        of Nicholas the Second, presented the church with an Icon of Our
        Lady.

        "This icon was in the Ipatyev house in which the family of the last
        Russian
        Emperor lived in imprisonment in 1918," says the information
        department of
        the regional governor.

        A religious procession with a cross and banners passed around the
        church.
        After its completion, a concert with the participation of the best
        opera
        singers took place in the square in front of the church.
