    Are Russians becoming more isolated from one another? Is there any one ready to stretch out a helping hand? Are Muscovites trying to escape reality? What did our teachers say when we wouldn’t listen? Can Russians carry firearms in public? All this and more in today’s edition of FMWL!

    Find out what happened when program presenter Nataly Stefanova had a bad fall late at night at a suburban train station. Is it true that Russians are becoming more isolated from one another and as a result there was no one to help? How serious were the injuries and what was the first aid like?

    The Hunger Games: Mocking jay — Part 1 is currently the biggest movie in the nation’s capital. It appears more and more Muscovites are escaping reality and heading to the movie theaters. But is reality really so gloomy? What are some of the perks of life in present day Moscow?

    In our brand new segment “Quotes from our Russian teachers”, we recall some of the original things our schoolteachers used to say, hoping to make a point.

    Recent changes in the national gun law, may allow Russians to carry certain types of firearms in public for “self-defense”. Are ordinary Russians ready for this major change? We discuss the issue and try to assess the possible consequences.
