    foreign ''experts? "

    if they are NOT POLITICIZED ...fine..but they should be subjected to scrutiny themselves -

    any report or analysis made by them -- any access to any part of the site and its material and records -

    they should not be allowed to make their consultations , with each other or any ''foreign" entities -- without COMPLETE consulation with russian authorities - INCLUDING any of their reports TO their governments and put on record so that ANY CHANGES , interpretatins that are NOT consistent with their ''expert" observations IN RUSSIA are to be subjected to later comparison as to ANY changes in interpretation as well as to HOW AND BY WHOM such potential changes are made -- and why.
