    Cars and people are reflected in the glass of a noticeboard, with the latest issue of the Pravda newspaper on display, near the newspaper's office in Moscow, May 4, 2012. One hundred years after its first edition appeared, the once mighty Pravda newspaper has gone back to its origins as a struggling opposition newspaper, but is still defiantly urging the workers of the world to unite. The paper that for decades was the mouthpiece of the ruling Soviet Communist Party, churning out propaganda that made a mockery of its title meaning "Truth," suffered a humiliating fall from grace as the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.
