Day of Russia

On June 12, The Russian Federation celebrates the Day of Russia.

Day of Russia has been celebrated since 1992 and is dedicated to the  Day of adoption of the declaration of state sovereignty of RSFSR. The latter was the official name of the Holiday until 1998, when Boris Eltsin suggested renaming it as “Day of Russia”. This name was officially declared in 2002 by the Labour code.

On June, 12, besides common celebrations ending with the firework, the President usually grants the National awards.

Today, the Russia Day is considered a symbol of both the people’s union and a common responsibility for the Present and Future of the country. This is a celebration of freedom, civil piece and agreement of all the people based of law and justice.

This year, all the celebrations will take place online to avoid congestion.
