Babushkas can be quite mean, though mostly it's shopping bags that are 
their preferred tools of assault. ;-)

 From TA:
"The cable is owned by the Georgian railway network. It is heavily 
protected"

I don't think that's true, you can't really heavily guard every stretch 
of cable since it spans such a long distance. There will always be weak 
spots.

 From TA:
"Pulling up unused copper cables for scrap is a common means of making 
money in the former Soviet Union."

This is common in the Netherlands too nowadays and other countries too I 
am sure. Because copper has gone up in price considerably. In the 
Netherlands especially copper lines along railroad tracks are removed, 
disabling alert systems with obvious dangerous results.

Regards,
Jeroen
