Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga


Are you interested in life in the USSR, its foreign policy, new scientific discoveries and achievements in medicine, development in art, problems of education and sport news?


All this can be learned from books, newspapers and magazines published in the USSR which are exported to more than 100 countries by V 0 Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga.


Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga supplies political and social-economic literature, the works of Russian classics and of modern Soviet literature, scientific and technical publications, textbooks, reference books and dictionaries, books on art and sports as well as some 2,000 newspapers and magazines in 30 foreign languages.


Gramophone records are one of the most accessible means of studying the rich musical culture of the peoples of the USSR. An ever-increasing variety of such records is being exported from the USSR.


Soviet stamps occupy a worthy place in the collection of foreign philatelists. These colorful and finely executed art miniatures reflecting the successes of Soviet people in developing the national economy, the achievements in mastering outer space, showing the flora and fauna of distant regions of the USSR, are of great interest.
