New artifacts related to the killing of the Romanov family have been found near the Staraya Koptyakovskaya Road in the Sverdlovsk Region.
"The places where parts of the Japanese beakers used to store acid for destroying the bodies of the Romanov family and people close to them have been found," Sergey Pogorelov, deputy head of the archeological research department of the Sverdlovsk Region's center for the protection and use of monuments of history and culture, said in a report obtained by Interfax.
The beakers were later broken and the pieces were hidden in different parts of the forest.
"Even at this preliminary stage of the investigation, new materials make it possible to conduct detailed historical reproduction of the events that occurred in that area in 1918," the archeologist said.
The find proves once again that the royal family's remains were destroyed and hidden in the Porosyonkov Log area, the expert said.
Pogorelov said the new artifacts were found fifty meters off the preliminary boundary of the previous finds.
According to earlier reports, a grave containing the remains of nine people was found near the Staraya Koptyakovskaya Road near Yekaterinburg in July 1991. The remains are believed to be those of members of the Russian royal family: Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra Fyodorovna, 46, their daughters Olga, 22, Tatyana, 21, Anastasia, 17, and people close to the royal family: Yevgeny Botkin, 53, Anna Demidova, 40, Aloizy Trupp, 62, and Ivan Kharitonov, 48.
On July 29, 2007, the remains of two other people were found seventy km away from the first grave. Numerous forensic tests have shown that the remains are those of Crown Prince Alexey and his sister Maria.
