Moldova Suverană (ISSN 1104-7) is a Romanian language official newspaper of the Moldovan government which is published daily in Chişinău. It had a circulation of 100,000 copies per day in 1994.

It was originally founded in the Moldavian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic capital of Balta in 1924, under the name Plugarul Roşu («Плугарул рош», lit. Red Ploughman). In 1930, it moved to Tiraspol, and was renamed to the name it would have during the remainder of the Soviet period, Moldova Socialistă («Молдова сочиалистэ»). It was printed in Chişinău, in the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic, from 1940, with the exception of 1941-1944, when it was printed in Moscow. It was renamed Moldova Suverenă upon the country's independence.

It was awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labour.
