Zoria (Dnipropetrovsk) («Зоря»; Star). An illustrated monthly journal of literature, culture, and politics, published in Dnipropetrovsk from January 1925 to October 1934. From 1927 it was the organ of the Dnipropetrovsk branch of the All-Ukrainian Association of Proletarian Writers, and in 1925–9 it was edited by Petro Yefremov and Ivan Tkachuk.
