This is the translation of the court’s decision to refuse the application to have the case reopened. It is a big disappointment for sure but we have appealed the decision and there are avenues after that, so it isn’t over yet. I am sure there will be many of you, as myself, who will have a lot to say on what is written here, but again I would ask that we let things take their course and let the appeal go through the system. The reference to dates at the bottom are to earlier attempts to reopen the case which, as it states, were ignored. This is because they did not follow the correct procedures and were therefore not registered:-

Mount Otorten

Keith McCloskey

Mount Otorten was the destination of the Dyatlov group and lies 9 miles (15km) to the north of the Dyatlov Pass. It was also the point at which the search party led by Boris Slobsov was landed by helicopter on 25 February 1959 to see if the group had reached that point. When they found no traces of the group, Slobsov's search party started working their way back down the Auspia Valley to trace the route that Igor Dyatlov would have been expected to follow to reach Otorten.

I am grateful to Mikhail Petrov for the use of these photos.
