Happy “Russia Day”: 12 of June, 2013

Russia DayRussia Day (День России Den Rossii) is the national day, celebrated on June 12. On this day, in 1990, Russian parliament formally declared Russian sovereignty from the USSR, unlike all other ex-Soviet republics which declared complete state independence , Russian independence was less radical, and coexistence of Russian and USSR state power had a place until the end of 1991. The holiday was officially established in 1992. Initially it was named Day of the Adoption of the Declaration of Sovereignty of the Russian Federation, on 1 February 2002 it was officially renamed to Russia Day, in 1998 Boris Yeltsin offered this name socially. There exists a misconception in Russian society, that this holiday is also called Russia’s Independence Day, but it never had such a name in official documents… (Wiki)

It is a day off and that is what most everyone likes it for in Russia…
