Founded in 1949, the Current Digest was first published as The Current Digest of the Soviet Press (1949-1991), followed by The Current Digest of the Post-Soviet Press (1992-2010), and now The Current Digest of the Russian Press. Each week the Current Digest presents a selection of Russian-language press materials, translated into English. The translations are intended for use in teaching and research. They are therefore presented as documentary materials without elaboration or comment, and state the opinions and views of the original authors, not of the publisher of the journal.
The English-language Kabul Times (1962-2020) covers events from the fall of the Kingdom of Afghanistan, the establishment of the People’s Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, the Soviet intervention during the 1980's, the rise of the Mujahedeen, as well as post-Cold War events in Afghanistan.
Moscow News (pub. 1930-2014) was the oldest English-language newspaper in the Soviet Union/Russian Federation. Over time it shifted from a mouthpiece of the Communist Party to an influential advocate for social and political change, reflecting the shifting ideological, political, social and economic currents of the Soviet Union and the post-Soviet Russian Federation.
