Bezvirnyk [«Безвірник»; Unbeliever]. Popular magazine of antireligious propaganda published semiweekly in Kharkiv from 1925 to 1935. Initially, until 1926, Bezvirnyk was published by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine and by the General Committee on Political Education of the Ukrainian SSR. It then became the organ of the Central Council of the Association of Militant Atheists of Ukraine. Bezvirnyk was revived as a weekly in Kyiv from 1937 to 1941 under the name Bezbozhnyk.
