SANKT PETERBURGSKIE VEDOMOSTI (The St. Petersburg Gazette) (in 1914-17 Petrogradskie Vedomosti), one of the oldest Russian newspapers, appearing since April 1728 in the Petersburg Academy of Sciences Press in Russian and German languages, and was the successor of the Petersburg's first newspaper Vedomosti. Following its first editor, academy member G. F. Miller, among others Y. Y. Shtelin I. F. Bogdanovich held the position in the 18th century. In 1728-42 the paper published its supplement Primechaniya k Vedomostyam being the first journal in the Russian language (the name repeatedly changed). In the 18th century the paper came out twice a week, from 1800 circulated as a daily. From 1847 the Academy of Sciences leased the publishing rights and in 1875 the Ministry for People's Education assumed them. The periodical had considerably extended the scope of the subject matter and under A. N. Ochkin's editorship (from 1836; from 1852 with A. A. Kraevsky's permanent contribution) became a notable public phenomenon. The newspapers editor from 1863 until 1874, V. F. Korsch, turned it into one of the major liberal oriented periodicals (feuilleton of V. P. Burenin and A. S. Suvorin enjoyed exceptional popularity, the literary section offered a remarkable diversity). Later under the editorship of V. V. Komarov, V. G. Avseenko, Prince E. E. Ukhtomsky, А. N. Cherkezov et al. the paper acquired a more officious tone. On 29 October (11 November) 1917 the publication was suppressed. At various periods the editorial office was situated at 4 Third Line, Vasilievsky Island; 26 Troitskaya Street (today Rubinsteina Street), 57 Liteiny Avenue and at some other locations. In 1991 the publication resumed; currently the Sankt-Peterburgskie Vedomosti operates as the largest political and public policy newspaper of the North-West Region of the Russian Federation, since 1991 under O. S. Kuzin's editorship. In 2002 it appeared five times a week (except for Sunday and Monday). The editorial office has its seat at 25 Marata Street. In 2000 the paper also launched its electronic version on the Internet.
