The two official Communist news outlets were Pravda (Truth) and Izvestia (which sort of translates as News or Information).  Folks in the USSR were known to "Joke" that there was no Truth in the Pravda, or News in Izvestia.

On some car, no memory of what or when, with swing axles i recall seeing a canvas strap that would keep the axle from swinging too far.  Might have been on a college roommates Corvair, but might have been some other car and at some other time.

I had always thought that "misled" was past tense of verb "to MISLE", and
pronounced "MY zuld"
"Politicians will MISLE you"

The correct spelling of the Russian newspaper requires a cyrillic font.
The third letter in the name looks like a capital 'B'
PI, 'P', 'A', 'B', isosceles trapezoid, 'A'

Pravda had nowhere near the ability to MISLE that the interwebs do.
