I wrote the Voice of Russia following the suggestion that their broadcasting on shortwave radio may soon end. A response has now arrived from the Letters Department of the VOR’s World Service. And the current word? Very similar to that of my previous post, though VOR confesses that the topic is presently being talked about:
This is to…inform you that the information about the presumable cancellation by the Voice of Russia of shortwave broadcasts as of January 2014 does not come from VOR’s official sources, therefore at this point we can neither confirm nor deny it since the issue is currently under discussion.
In other words, stay tuned…
Not exactly a positive note–no news is no news–but I am impressed that they are taking the time to respond to each inquiry so quickly.
