Today Russia commemorates national holiday – Russia Day.
On June 12, 1990, the First Congress of People’s Deputies of the RSFSR adopted the Declaration of State Sovereignty of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, which proclaimed the equality of political parties and public associations, approved the principle of the separation of powers, and determined the supremacy of the RSFSR’s Constitution and laws on its entire territory.
On December 25, 1991, the RSFSR Law On Changing the Name of the State of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic was approved and came into force, establishing the country’s new name, the Russian Federation (Russia).
The Declaration of State Sovereignty signified the beginning of a new stage in the Russian state’s history. Since 2002, this holiday has been officially called Russia Day. On June 12, this country and its civil society, celebrates the national unity of all peoples of Russia.
The Diplomatic Informer Magazine extends our warmest congratulations to the Government and the people of Russia and wishing the Government and People of Russia renewed peace and prosperity. #russiaday #russiaday2022 #russia1love
