Rudé Právo

 

a daily Czech-language newspaper; organ of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia since May 18, 1921. It was founded Sept. 21, 1920, as the organ of the left wing of the Czechoslovak Social Democratic Labor Party. In addition to the daily, an evening edition was put out from 1920 to 1934 (called Rudé právo—Večerník until 1928 and Rudy večerník from 1928 to 1934); a rural edition, Rudá zář, was also published from 1922 to 1936.

Under the Czechoslovak bourgeois republic, Rudé právo was frequently confiscated and banned, but it continued to publish clandestinely. During the occupation of Czechoslovakia by fascist Germany (1938–45) Rude právo was produced in the underground. On May 6, 1945, it resumed legal publication. It is published in Prague, with a circulation of 850,000 in 1976. The circulation of the Saturday edition in 1975 was 1,080,000. There is a Saturday supplement called Haló sobota.

The newspaper was awarded the Order of the Republic in 1955, the Order of K. Gottwald in 1970, and the Order of Victorious February in 1973. The anniversary of the newspaper’s founding is observed in Czechoslovakia as Czechoslovak Press, Radio, and Television Day.
