"The media reported that a 15-year-old girl died from a serious illness in a hospice at one of the monasteries in the Sverdlovsk region ... Alexander Bastrykin instructed the heads of the investigative departments ... to report on these circumstances," the UK press release says.

As the ombudsman for the rights of the child in the Sverdlovsk region Igor Morokov specified, the girl died as a result of health problems.

"This is a very sad story, the parents fought for the girl, but still such a state of health ... We will wait for the IC to issue its final decision, but, most likely, our intervention is not needed here," RIA Novosti quotes him.

At the end of July, the Verkhnepyshminsky City Court fined the defrocked Schema-monk Sergius in an administrative case for inciting hatred.
