The digital versions (2K) of the Kino-Pravda newsreels were produced in 2017 from archival 35mm film prints preserved at the Austrian Film Museum. Print source: Gosfilmofond, Moscow and RGAKFD, Krasnogorsk
Scan: Listo (Vienna)

Release dates
The release dates, when available, are taken from the intertitles (Kino-Pravda No. 1, 4–9, 11). In those episodes where such information is not provided, the dates are based on the information gathered from available literature, film montage lists or contemporary newspaper reports. In many cases, only a rough estimate of the production or release dates is possible.
