There has been another development in the case surrounding the last Tsar and his family. It has been decided to also perform tests on the remains of the servants who were with Nicolas II and his family when they were murdered. Official tests have been ordered to identify the remains of the servants, Eugene Botkin, Ivan Kharitonov, Alexei Trupp and Anna Demidova. The genetic materials taken from the people who died with the tsar family are now being compared to the materials taken from their living relatives.

Though details are scarce right now, the tests are apparently going well.
