European intelligence agencies try to listen in to Russian radio broadcasts. A British Intelligence MI6 listening station in the Ukraine begins a survey of Russian radio broadcasts. After six weeks, the only signals heard are looping propaganda programs in Russian encouraging, "Brotherhood, strength and fortitude...in the face of the angry night". There are no new broadcasts over across a network of 12,000 stations serving nearly 100 million citizens.
