An innovative newspaper officially run by teenagers. Was published in Moscow, Russia, from 1991 until approximately 1997.

Really, the persons behind Glagol were several adult, experienced journalists, most notably Irina Veretennikova. But the role and influence of the teenagers was really significant -- and so was the education they received in the work.

Glagol was a product and a part of Russia's exceptional freedom in the early 90's, after the breaking of the Communist rule. Its heyday was in 1992-93, with a large office given by the Russian Federation. The office was later taken away, and the newspaper staff started to wane, until the quiet end in 1997 or 1998.

A plethora of well-known young journalists has come out of Glagol. Most of them work for various media in Russia.
