Moskovskii Komsomolets (Russian: Московский комсомолец) is a Moscow-based daily newspaper with a circulation approaching one million, covering general news.[1] Founded in 1919, it is now regarded as publishing sensational or provocative items on Russian politics and society.[citation needed]

MK is also known as the host of Russia's oldest hit parade - the Zvukovaya Dorozhka ("sound track"). It has been published monthly since 1977 and features both Russian and international acts (in Soviet times, these were mostly from the Eastern Bloc).
