Summary: Russian-Armenian businessman and entrepreneur who had been hospitalized in critical condition for almost a week from severe burns suffered up to 90 percent of his body resulted in the horrific December 5 nightclub fire and stampede that killed at least 110 people (and counting) and seriously injured more than 160 others including fellow Armenian national Petr Anatolevich Nalbandian as the fire quickly spread to the walls and damaged the electrical wing when sparks from fireworks ignited  the low ceiling and willow twig covering after a performance artist threw cold-flame pyrotechnics into the air during one of the most deadliest fire disasters to strike Russia in recent years since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, in which the incident bears some similarities to the February 2003 The Station nightclub fire in the U.S. state of Rhode Island caused by the improper usage of indoor pyrotechnics which ignited the flammable sound-proofing foam in the building.
