"Fog shrouds the icy waters of the Bering Sea on May 15th, 1987, and youngsters collect on the shore to wait for their fisherman fathers to bring in the catch. Beyond the mist, 70 miles away, lies America. - the Aleutian Islands. Far, far to the west, nearly 7,000 miles distant in Soviet Kaliningrad (the Konigsberg of pre-war east Prussia), families are now sitting down to dinner..There, it is the night before, May the 14th. They are closer to the U.S.A. than to the Bering shores." - A Day in the Life of the Soviet Union
