    Russia exhumes the remains of the last Tsar Nicholas II
    and his wife to relaunch a criminal probe into his murder


    • Russia's Romanov dynasty were massacred by the Bolsheviks in 1918
    • Remains of tsar, empress and three children were thrown into a mineshaft
    • They were buried in a military ceremony at a St Petersburg church in 1998
    • But Russian Orthodox Church is not convinced the bones are authentic
    • The remains of two other children have now been found and Russia wants
    ...to convince the church to let them be buried alongside the tsar

    Somehow I don't think this will ever be truly resolved, no matter how many tests they due.
    It feels like a hamster wheel.
