The shipping industry's newspaper Water Transport (media registration certificate No FS77-35138) was founded back in 1918. Over the years, the printed publication was developing along with the domestic shipping. As the print publication of the USSR's Ministry of Maritime Fleet and the Ministry of River Fleet of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, the Water Transport newspaper provided unbiased and timely coverage of both achievements and problems of the country's shipping industry. By the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR the Water Transport was awarded the Order of Red Banner of Labor for great contribution to the development and improvement of the industry. The newspaper is issued monthly and it has regional inserts, Volga-Baltic and Don.
