Sputnik has replaced Ria Novosti on the international stage since 2014. Its photo service was launched in 1946 by the Soviet Information Office, and captured all the major events of the USSR period: the conquest of outer space, the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline Railway, the Chernobyl disaster and the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Today the agency offers extensive daily coverage of Russian politics, sports, culture and economy.
