MOSCOW, May 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The United States will supply comprehensive information about the death of nine-year-old Anton Fomin to Russia, the U.S. embassy in Moscow said.
Russian Children’s Rights Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov reported the boy’s death to the Russian public. “We have tragic news from the United States: one more adopted child from Russia – nine-year-old Anton Fomin – has died in a fire at the house of the U.S. adoptive family. We are studying causes of the fire, circumstances of the tragic incident and reasons why the boy was staying in the basement,” he said.
The embassy said it was aggrieved with the boy’s death in Nebraska on May 17 and presented condolences to the family and friends. It denied claims that the boy was adopted and said the boy came to the United States together with his biological parents.
Although the Department of State has no direct relation to this case, it will supply necessary information to Russian authorities and assist their contact with the Nebraska administration, the embassy said.
