Moskovskij Komsomolets

Daily newspaper

Moskovski Komsomolets (MK) was formerly the newspaper of the Communist Party's youth organisation. After 1991 it was privatised and has belonged to its current editor-in-chief Pavel Gusev ever since. MK is now Russia's highest circulation daily and relies on a combination of tabloid and serious newspaper coverage to attract readers. Its general political orientation is pro-Kremlin. Gusev has been on Western sanctions lists since 2022.
