    A newspaper called Pravda still exists.
    And just to confuse things, there is also Pravda Online, which is a separate publication.

    Just say "Pravda" and similarly just say "Izvestia"

    Pravda means "the Truth"

    Pravda was the official newspaper of the Communist Party, until Yeltsin shut the party down, and seized all its assets in 1991. The journalists of Pravda then registered a new paper with the same title a few weeks later.
