Rasputin

Places connected with the murder
Here is what the last day of Rasputin in memoirs of his daughter, Matrena Rasputina is described:

Against usial itinerary the father was absolutely gloomy, has left to a bedroom to change clothes. I have noticed that he has chosen the best shirt - silk, with blue cornflowers - it embroidered by Alexandra Fedorovna.

About seven p.m. a call to the door was distributed. Alexander Dmitrievich Protopopov - the Minister of Internal Affairs often visiting us has come.

His view was suppressed. He has asked us to leave the room to talk to the father alone. We left, but through a door heard all.

- Grigory Efimovich, some people wish to kill you.
- I know.

When Protopopov has left, and father has told to anybody without addressing:

- I will die, when it will be necessary to God.

Then about an hour we sat in a dining room. The father has kissed Varia, then me, has wished good night, then sent us to sleep. I could not fall asleep.

I was filled with fear. Soon the house has plunged into the silence broken by a clock ticking, counting last hour of my father life in the house number 64 on Gorokhovaya street.

At the appointed time father left the house. The car, sent by Yusupov, already wait for him
