Perhaps he realizes what has happened to him, but asks nothing about the mother," ITAR-TASS quoted the diplomat as saying. He also noted that if the operation is successful, the six-year Alexander will be evacuated to Russia on board a special EMERCOM flight in 5-7 days.
Doctors intend to operate Alexander today or tomorrow. "This will look at his condition. Maybe they will operate the boy tonight," said the consul.
He also confirmed that the boy's aunt was going to arrive in Bangkok comes aunt boy. "In a telephone conversation, she said that the family decided to cremate the boy's mother in Thailand. Her ashes will then be delivered to her home town," said the official.
