Novoe Vremia


(New Times), a Russian newspaper published from 1868 to 1917 in St. Petersburg.

Novoe vremia appeared five times weekly until its 234th issue in 1869, after which it became a daily. In 1881 the newspaper began publishing a morning and an evening edition, and in 1891 a weekly illustrated supplement was introduced. The newspaper was owned by various publishers, including A. K. Kirkov and N. N. Iumatov (until 1872), F. N. Ustrialov (1872–73), O. K. Notovich (1873–74), K. V. Trubnikov (1874–76), A. S. Suvorin (1876–1912), and the A. S. Suvorin Company (1912–17). In 1872 and 1873 Novoe Vremia held progressive and liberal views. On May 23, 1872, in its 106th issue, it published an editorial devoted to the first Russian edition of the first volume of K. Marx’ Das Kapital. Under Suvorin, Novoe Vremia became the most unprincipled of all Russian newspapers. V. I. Lenin called it a “model example of the venal press. Novoe Vremia became an expression synonymous with the concepts of apostasy, renegacy, and sycophancy” (Poln. sobr. soch., 5th ed. vol. 22, p. 44).

In 1905, Novoe vremia became the organ of the Black Hundreds. After the February Revolution of 1917, the newspaper conducted a defamatory campaign against the Bolsheviks. It was closed by the Petrograd Military Revolutionary Committee on Oct. 26 (Nov. 8), 1917.
