Pionerskaya Pravda

Last updated

Pionerskaya Pravda (Пионе́рская Пра́вда) is an all-Russian newspaper. Initially it was an all-Union newspaper of the Soviet Union. Its name may be translated as "Truth for Young Pioneers".



The newspaper was founded March 6, 1925 in Moscow and published under the name “School Pravda” and later under “Pioneer Truth”. [1] [2] Nikolai Bukharin was the first editor of the newspaper. Different poets and artists, like Mikhail Zoshchenko, Ilya Ilf, Evgeny Petrov and Vladimir Mayakovsky, cooperated with the newspaper. [3]

The newspaper became a weekly printed body of the Moscow RKSM Committee. In the 1970s and 1980s its circulation approached 10,000,000 (almost every child in the Soviet Union had a subscription). Its title followed the name of the main Soviet newspaper of the time, Pravda , as did multiple other newspapers.

The newspaper continues to exist today, but now it is not associated with Young Pioneers, and the circulation is greatly reduced.

Similar newspapers were published in other languages of the USSR: as of 1974, six newspapers in Russian and 22 in other languages.
