For the eponymous newspapers of Imperial Russia, see Sankt-Peterburgskie Vedomosti and Moskovskie Vedomosti.

Vedomosti (Russian: Ведомости, literally "The Record") is a Russian language business daily. The paper is published in Moscow.[1] It was preiovusly a joint venture between Dow Jones, the Financial Times[2] and the publishers of The Moscow Times.[3] The Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal sold their stakes in 2015, ahead of a new Russian media ownership law which came into effect in 2016. Sanoma also sold its stake in the paper in 2015. The paper is now owned by Demyan Kudryavtsev, who was previously chief executive of Kommersant.[4]


Their own website writes:[5]

"Business daily Vedomosti is a unique project. Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal, the world's leading business newspapers, joined their efforts to bring it to life. Together with the largest Russian publishing house Sanoma Independent Media, they have been publishing Vedomosti since 1999. ... Vedomosti sees its mission in providing readers with timely, detailed and objective coverage. More than 100 journalists in Moscow and regions of Russia, with the help of reporters of Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal's international networks, inform readers on a daily basis about the most important economic, political, financial and corporate events, offering an in-depth analysis and forecasts."
