The scattering of a wave by a cylindric object hidden within the dielectric is studied. The total reflection is frustrated because of the scattering. Magnetic and electric fields at the dielectric surface and the energy flux are calculated by the modified boundary element method at near-field and far-field distances. The total reflection is shown to rearrange the shape of a scattering indicatrix.
