V23 is the French language flavor of the Russian 6 operator. It was first heard for one week in August 1999. It has later resurfaced briefly in March 2010, May 2016, and September 2017.

The August 1999 transmissions were held every day except Sunday, at 09:00 and 19:00 UTC. The following is a list of frequencies and headers of all the transmissions that were noted:
|Day||09:00 UTC||19:00 UTC|
|13 August 1999||15840 kHz||362||11060 kHz||362||490|
|14 August 1999||10635 kHz||362||499||91||8124 kHz||362||508||82|
|15 August 1999||No transmissions|
|16 August 1999||15840 kHz||362||525||90||11060 kHz||362||544||95|
|17 August 1999||10635 kHz||362||552||81||8124 kHz||362||559||96|
|18 August 1999||15840 kHz||362||571||93||11060 kHz||362||580||87|

|20 August 1999||15840 kHz||362||607||90||11060 kHz||362||616||91|
19:00 UTC transmission on 19 August took place on 8140 kHz, due to 8124 kHz already taken up by some other station. Following V23's disappearance, V06, E06 and G06 came up using the same ID that V23 used, "362."
It initially had a female voice. It has not been heard since August 1999 - since then, a new male voice, using non-native pronunciations, has been used instead.
