I recorded the entire supposed to be the last broadcast of Voice of Russia in Bengali on March 28th during 1530-1600UTC on 7305kHz.The reception quality was not very good but still audible.There was nothing special as such in their last transmission...just a announcement repeated from time to time..that due to some reasons radio broadcast of Voice of Russia would be not available for sometime but news etc will be available via its website ....etc.After news,current affairs reports came Listeners Mail specially from Clubs was aired.And a song from Dr.Bhupen Hazarika was aired in Bengali.....in between the listeners letters reading.So,...........another station broadcasting in Bengali going off the air....Long back heard in newspapers....in Assamese....of closing down only Assamese broadcast (of 15 minutes duration) from a major international broadcaster..other than religious station...from then Radio Moscow..Voice of Russia.......& now after a decade & half of that.......the Bengali Section also has gone off the air via shortwave.....!!!!!!!!What next???????????????
