<< A few Russian paleontologists, cautiously backed by a group of Western
colleagues, have accused the institute's directors of master minding
the heists and using the proceeds to set up private companies. Those
same firms, they allege, are now ravaging Russia's fragile natural
fossil deposits and collaborating with PIN insiders to fake the "expert
certificates" required by Russian law to export scientifically
important specimens to lucrative Western fossil markets.>>

       A perfect opportunity for the Discovery Channel to do some in-depth, 
hard-hitting investigative reporting! DV
