    The Russian Foreign Ministry is ready to provide the necessary assistance to a Russian teenager accused of killing his adoptive parents in the United States, Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov on Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier this month, US media reported that 17-year-old Carl Brewer, who was allegedly adopted from Russia, killed his adoptive parents Troy Gene Brewer, 60, and Mary Sheldon Brewer, 64, in Crowley, Texas.

If he [needs] any help, consular or legal, of course we shall provide assistance," Dolgov told RIA Novosti.
