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.
