    MOSCOW, April 27 (RIA Novosti) - The Moscow Region holds a day of mourning on Saturday for those, who lost their lives in a deadly blaze at a local hospital earlier this week.

    A total of 38 people died early on Friday in the fire that broke out at a psychiatric hospital in the small town of Ramensky north of Moscow.

    “All scheduled entertainment events have been cancelled in connection with the mourning,” the press service for acting Moscow Region Governor Andrei Vorobyov said.

    A police source told RIA Novosti earlier that most patients in the facility in Ramensky had died in their sleep from smoke inhalation, as they were likely sedated by prescribed medicine.
