Moskovskiye Novosti to Be Relaunched

RIA-Novosti and the Vremya publishing house have agreed to relaunch the once-influential Moskovskiye Novosti as a daily newspaper, the news agency reported Monday.

Vremya Novostei, a daily newspaper, would provide the editorial resources, while RIA-Novosti would contribute the brand name and “media infrastructure” for the project, which is to be introduced next year, the report said.

Moskovskiye Novosti was first published in Russian in 1980, and the weekly paper became a major mouthpiece of liberal commentators during Mikhail Gorbachev’s perestroika.

The paper was closed in 2008 by its last owner, Israeli businessman Arkady Gaidamak, who cited business reasons for the move.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
