I've heard of something like this, watch Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. the treasure was in India but it's close to Siberia sort of.
Get a taste of what awaits you in print from this compelling excerpt.
From a pit twelve feet (three meters) deep, Pavel Leus looked up at the three archaeologists standing on the rim. "Guys," he declared, "we've got a problem. We need the police."
Digging beneath a kurgan, or burial mound, in the Republic of Tuva, a little-known precinct of Siberia, Leus had just squinted into a log-walled vault. He saw two skeletons and the dim glow of gold. Lots of gold.

a research team travelling into the huge interior of the country and all being lost...non returned...apparentley this was quite common for a period of time....the expeditions were primarily to discover and map this region...and the deaths were caused by the extreme cold,lack of supplys and members falling through iced lakes etc invisible because of the snow.
It is easy to understand that a country would send scientists/explorers to perform tasks of mapping,searching for resources etc...even perhaps that the russians have secret bases in this enviromentally hostile region...
