    This week on FMWL we re-discover legendary Russian cartoon character - Cheburashka, eat pancakes, give presents to men, and survive frosts and blizzards. All that and more right here, on FMWL from Radio Sputnik.

    This week on the show, we re-discover the once popular, Soviet era cartoon character – Cheburashka. For many generations of kids here, this small, furry creature with big ears was a cherished hero. So who or what is Cheburashka? We answer a listener’s question.

    Spring is in the air and with it comes a whole list of traditional holidays. We tell you why Russians eat bliny in alarming quantities, send flowers and give presents to men.

    We are on Facebook.
