Moskovskij Komsomolets (digital newspaper “MK.ru”), is a Moscow-based daily newspaper with a circulation approaching one million, covering general news. Founded in 1919, it is now regarded as publishing sensational or provocative items on Russian politics and society. MK is also known as the host of Russia’s oldest hit parade – the Zvukovaya Dorozhka . The newspaper was first published by the Moscow Committee of the Komsomol on 11 December 1919 as Yuny Kommunar (Russian: Юный коммунар, “Young Communard”). In 1924, after Lenin’s death, it was renamed to Molodoy Leninets (Russian: Молодой ленинец, “Leninist-to-Be”). It took its present-day name in September 1929. Between 1931 and 1939 the paper ceased publication. It was revived in 1940 but not for long: the war interrupted publishing again in August 1941. Publishing resumed only on 2 October 1945. Until 1990 it served as the organ of the Moscow Committee and the Moscow City Committee of the All-Union Leninist Young Communist League. In 1991 it was taken over by its editorial staff.
Trud is a Russian newspaper. Trud’s first issue was on February 19, 1921, in Moscow, in what was then the Soviet Union. Under the Soviet state, the paper published the work of famous writers and poets, including Vladimir Mayakovsky, Nikolai Rubtsov, Yuri Nagibin, and Yevgeny Yevtushenko. Prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Trud was the press organ of the All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions. It emphasized labor and economic analyses and included official decrees and orders. In 1990 the paper’s circulation reached 21.5 million, the world’s largest according to the Guinness Book of Records.
