    This week on FMWL we speak of the assassination of Russian politician Boris Nemtsov and the many- thousand-strong procession in his memory, we also discuss Sharia Law in Australia, talk about Star Trek and House of Cards, CNN, NBC and Fox News, and get ready for St. Patrick’s Day.

    It’s been a sad week for many around the world. Vasily talks about Boris Nemtsov and describes the many thousand strong Moscow march in his honor.

    Meanwhile, in the United States, actor Leonard Nimoy passed away at the age of 83. We talk about Star Trek’s popularity in Russia, Mr. Spock’s legacy and the importance of being cool and logical in today’s, sometimes, hate filled world.

    St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. Natasha explains how the date is marked in Moscow and we join a listener in America, who celebrates the holiday in the state of Indiana.

    As always – listener’s letters, emails and comments… and we’re on Facebook.
