Golos (newspaper)

Golos (Russian: Голос, Voice) was a Russian political and literary newspaper, edited and published in Saint Petersburg in 1863-1885 by Andrey Krayevsky.

In its first five years the newspaper received 11 official warnings and 3 bans, one of which resulted in a six-month gap. The newspaper's major contributors were Vasily Bilbasov (since 1871 its editor-in-chief), Alexey Pleshcheyev, Nikolai Albertini, Vladimir Bezobrazov, Vasily Modestov, Evgeny Markov, Pyotr Yefremov, Lev Panyutin, Grigory Gradovsky, Alexander Gradovsky, Vladimir Zotov, Pyotr Nechayev, Arseny Vvedensky, Leonid Polonsky and Feofil Tolstoy among others.[1]
