The Soviet villagers who blocked Western radio broadcasts

Starting from the 1950s the USSR operated a network of such secret radio stations to stop what was considered anti-Soviet propaganda from the West.

The village Radio Station #5, in what is now the republic of Georgia, had the sole purpose of jamming broadcasters such as the BBC and Voice of America.
