(NECN) – Funeral Director Peter Stefan, who is arranging the funeral of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, says he just wants the body to be delivered back to Russia, as it would end all problems according to him.

Stefan held a press conference Monday morning to describe the current state of what the funeral plans were.

“I think for everybody, I think if we get him back to Russia for his parents, for his uncle, that would eliminate all the problems, it’s done and over with,” said Stefan.

In regards to the people protesting, he said that someone along the line, people need to set aside their feelings and progress.

He plans on talking with Mass. Governor Deval Patrick about what the definite plans will be with the body.
