- The Moskovskiye Novosti: from a leaflet to a global weekly
- Viktor Loshak: The success of The Moskovskiye Novosti was the success of all of perestroika
RIA Novosti and the publishing house Vremya are beginning joint work on the resurrection of the famous Perestroika-era newspaper Moskovskiye Novosti (MN), which closed down in 2007.
MN was co-founded in 1980 by the Novosti Press Agency (now RIA Novosti) and the Union of Soviet Societies for Friendship with Foreign Countries. The Russian-language version of The Moscow News would have celebrated its 30th anniversary this July.
“We are certain that that by using the platform of the Vremya Novostei newspaper and RIA Novosti we will come up with the most up-to-date newspaper that will use a diversity of formats and platforms to produce and deliver content to readers,” Svetlana Mironyuk, RIA Novosti's editor-in-chief, said.
Renewed Moskovskiye Novosti will be a daily and the first editions are planned for late January or early February.
In the late 1980s Moskovskiye Novosti supported Mikhail Gorbachev’s ideas of perestroika and glasnost. Many readers queued outside news kiosks at six in the morning, because after seven it became impossible to buy a copy anywhere in the country. People traveled from all over the country to read the paper.
