MOSCOW, April 4 (Itar-Tass) – Moscow will do its utmost to have Kirill Kuzmin, a younger brother of Maxim Kuzmin who died in a foster family in the United States, return to Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“We have serious doubts about the validity of Maxim Kuzmin’s autopsy report,” he said.
“We shall do our best to have Maxim’s brother, Kirill Kuzmin, return to Russia. We have enough reasons for that,” the spokesman stressed.
Maxim Kuzmin, 3, who was given the name Max Alan after the adoption, and his younger brother Kirill (Kristopher Elvin) were adopted from a children’s home in the town of Pechory, Pskov region, by Alan and Laura Shatto, who live in Gardendale, Texas, in late 2012. A court decision on their adoption was passed in October 2012, and in late December - early January the children were brought to the United States. The boy died on January 21, less than two weeks after his third birthday. Postmortem examination revealed numerous injuries.
However, U.S. forensic experts said the boy’s death was accidental. The official cause of death was mesenterial intestine arteriorrhexis after a blunt force trauma. In March, the U.S. prosecutors decided not to bring any charges against the boy’s adoptive parents due to the insufficiency of evidence.
