Soviet Information Bureau

Soviet Information Bureau ( _ru. Советское информационное бюро ("Sovetskoye informatsionnoye byuro"), commonly known as Sovinformburo (Совинформбюро)) was a leading Soviet news agency in 1941 - 1961. It was established on June 24, 1941, shortly after the opening of the Eastern Front of World War II by a directive of Sovnarkom and the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union "to bring into the limelight international events, military developments, and day-to-day life through printed and broadcast media." [ [http://eng.9may.ru/eng_inform_war/m9005510 Sovinformburo during WWII] ] During the war Sovinformburo directed the activity of the All-Slavonic Committee, Anti-Nazi Committee of Soviet Women, Anti-Nazi Committee of the Soviet Youth, Anti-Nazi Committee of Soviet Scientists and the Jewish Anti-Nazi Committee. In 1944, a special bureau on propaganda for foreign countries was set up as part of Sovinformburo.
