Bil’shovyk Ukraïny

Bil’shovyk Ukraïny («Більшовик України»; Bolshevik of Ukraine). Biweekly periodical of the Central Committee of the Communist Party (Bolshevik) of Ukraine in Kharkiv from 1926 to 1934 and thereafter in Kyiv. Its purpose was to interpret the Party’s policy directives in Ukraine. There were frequent changes in the editorial board as the Party’s policies shifted, and founders of the journal (Mykola Skrypnyk, Dmytro Zatonsky, Andrii Richytsky, Andrii Khvylia, Volodymyr Yurynets) were liquidated during the Stalinist terror of the 1930s. At the end of 1952 the journal’s name was changed to Komunist Ukraïny.
