They must have decided these guys are untouchable

As we've seen in the past, if there was a hope in hell of actually catching them, the feds would have sealed the indictments and kept names under wraps until they had their mitts on the crooks.

Of course with a $5million bounty there's always a possibility they may be delivered - trussed up like turkeys - to a US border checkpoint by someone wanting to collect. The fact that they've had to _offer_ that kind of bounty even after "Russian authorities have cooperated" pretty much underscores their untouchability.
