Thank you Nigel.
Maybe I'm the only person who thinks that since 1959 to this day, everything is the same game, and nothing has changed. In fact, nobody has any interest in closing this case definitely and for ever. Who actually works the fool from who? First they officially announce the reopening of the case with great pomp. Then after two months, when everyone expects at least some statement, we have found that in fact the case hasn't been reopened. And what does that mean? Maybe, after preliminary investigation will be main investigation and after that I don't know what kind of investigation... and common to all investigations is that are not obliged to nothing and nobody.
This metaphorically reminds me of Loch Ness, when everybody have interest and profit that it does not officially say that Nessie does not exist and never existed at all. Because there are too many interests behind.
It's the same here.
In reality, the state will never make a formal statement. For these or other reasons. More are the rumors and wrinkles are present the higher is the layer above the objective truth. The time moving away, and the tragedy on the Dyatlov pass gets more and more abstract. And then it's just a matter of time, when they slowly slip into myth and legend. And it seems that this is a major interest.
This is just my opinion...
