Are these remnants of Andrei Rublev found?

The Moscow Patriarchy got documents showing that the remnants of two bodies found at the Andronikov Monastery probably belong to Andrei Rublev and his teacher Daniil Chorny.
      'The examination of the skulls showed that the age difference of the buried bodies is about 20 years', - noted anthropologist Sergey Nikitin, the head of the research team. - One of them was about 50 and the other about 70 years old'.
      According to Nikitin, the specialists of Russian State Library have found out that Andrei Rublev was born somewhat in the 1370s. The found remnants were reburied in the cathedral in 1427. Complete examination was done on May 6, 2003. The monastery abbot, however, is not sure yet that these are Rublev's remnants. 'The last word is with the specialists of the Patriarchy. Let's hope that this year already we'll be able to prostrate before the Holy Relics of Andrei Rublev', - marked archpriest Vyacheslav Savinykh.
      The great icon painter Andrei Rublev was sainted in 1988, the 1000th jubilee of the christening of Russia.
