PS: In the late 80ies German professional soldiers working as radio
operators, who spied Russians radio, learn that it should take around 20
years to decrypted one mail. I know one and because it's a long time

the current state, but it's still said, that it should take around 20
years. Suspect! I guess in 2020 or 2030 they are allowed to give
information about the state of today.
