Irina Razina decided not to leave the error without punishment and sued to the court. Her claim was met in June 2014. The court ordered St. Petersburg State University to pay compensation in favor of patient in the amount of $300,000. It should also be noted that official medical state institutions in St, Petersburg and region confirmed that inaccurate actions of medical staff led to the tragedy and doctors were guilty of childís death.
