History of Pravda
Pravda was founded in 1912 in St. Petersburg, Russia and was subjected to constant persecution, fines,
penalties, and prohibitions by the government and was published under multiple names and locations in the
early years to avoid censorship and forced closures. Originating as an underground, daily workers' newspaper,
Pravda soon became the main newspaper of the revolutionary wing of the Russian socialist movement and the
official voice of the Central Committee of the Communist Party between 1918 and 1991. Today, Pravda remains
the main newspaper of the Communist Party of Russia.
As the Soviet state newspaper and central source of information and education, Pravda offered the official
party line featured articles and analyses on domestic and foreign policy, economics and cultural topics.
Conceived for the mass proletariat, Pravda had millions of press runs.
The redesigned interface now features the historic titles of the newspaper, cities, dates, frequency
published, and status of each. Also highlighted are the specific details of all 534 issues added to the
