Does a gravitational wave propagate in the five-dimensional space-time with Kaluza-Klein monopole?

The behaviour of small perturbations around the Kaluza-Klein monopole in the five-dimensional space-time is investigated. The fact that the odd-parity gravitational wave does not propagate in the five-dimensional space-time with Kaluza-Klein monopole is found, provided that the gravitational wave is constant in the fifth direction.
