Novaya Zhizn

New Life: A daily newspaper of a Menshevik trend, but wavered and took a Bolshevik position at times. The paper was the organ of a group of Social-Democrats known as Internationalists, whose members were Menshevik adherents of Martov and non-aligned intellectuals.

The paper was published in Petrograd beginning in April 1917. After the October Revolution it agitated against the Soviet government and was closed down in July 1918.


Novoye Vremya

New Times: A daily newspaper, published in St. Petersburg from 1868. In 1905 it became an organ of the Black Hundreds. Lenin called it a model of a corrupted newspaper.

The paper was closed down by the Revolutionary Military Committee of the Petrograd Soviet on October 26 (November 8), 1917.
