re: "Fixed already. There was cable ct bteween Moscow and St. Petersburg."

Admittedly OT, but interesting for purpose of providing contrast, from Ghana:

http://www.balancingact-africa.com/news/current1.html

- Ghana Telecom (GT) has ‘lost’ the underground network cable that provides
communications to a number of major government offices in the Osu Castle in
Accra, according to The Statesman newspaper. Bulldozer operative Collins Antwi is
currently in police custody for causing unlawful damage to state property after
his machine allegedly tore through the GT cabling as he worked on a site close to
the Guinean Embassy. Around 7,000 users are thought to have been cut off
following Antwi’s actions, including workers at the National Police Headquarters,
the National Fire Service and the Bureau of National Investigations. The
Statesman says that with the network down the running of the country will be a
‘Herculean task’.
