Famous Russian film and theatre actor, Alexander Porokhovschikov, has died in a hospital on Orthodox Easter's night, after a protracted illness.

      According to the artist's advocate, Porokhovschikov died in Moscow Sechenov's hospital, where he had been hospitalized on March 6. The first diagnosis was a stroke, but it wasn't proved later. Medics say the actor had some rare neurological illness. The current diagnosis is not specified yet, but its probable cause is a diabetes mellitus.

      Alexander felt worse the last months: he had a gangrene because of diabetes and medics had to amputate a part of his foot. Then the actor had a stroke and a heart attack, felt in coma from time to time, couldn't speak at all.

      His condition was getting worse because of permanent anxiety over lawsuit with his relatives for the ownership of his flat.

      Porokhovschikov's wife Irina committed suicide on 10 March 2012 after getting information about her husband's critical condition. Previously she had been in deep depression for several weeks. 

      The actor himself asked for Irina several times but then slipped into a coma again and died without knowing about his wife's suicide.

      Porokhovschikov will be buried on April 18, at the cemetery of the Rozhdestveno village, Moscow region, where his mother's grave is placed.

      Starting in 1968, Alexander Porokhovschikov acted in more than 100 films. The most well-known of them are "Burn, My Star, Burn!" (Gori, Gori, Moya Zvezda, 1969), "At Home among Strangers" (Svoy sredi chuzhikh, chuzhoy sredi svoikh, 1974), "The Captivating Star of Happiness" (Zvezda plenitelnogo schastya, 1975), "Captain Nemo" (Kapitan Nemo, 1975), "Don't Lose Your Love" (S Lyubimymi ne Rasstavaites, 1980), "Professor Dowell's Testament" (Zaveschaniye Professora Douelya, 1984), "Experts Investigate" (Sledstviye Vedut Znatoki, 1971-2003).
