Cable tapping

I watched an amazing documentary about the US tapping underwater cables owned by Russia and Russia doing the same back.

The underwater cables were easily spotted because of signs warning boats of the cables in both English and Russian.

If I remember correctly, the US had a hunch that Russia might also have signs warning boats/fishermen of the underwater cables just like the US did and their hunch paid off when similar sign in Russian were spotted.
