  1. After all, Russia has responded to the letter.
    I do understand that the Russians are looking for the public. Too often their concerns to the final report have been ignored by the Western media.
    However, it is bad style not to send the letter also to the relatives themselves.

    It would be interesting is Russia published all data they gave to the DSB and copies of all correspondence.

    Both are quasi in the public domain and by publishing the material Russia would become the most transparent party in the investigation (if they aren’t already)
