Russia Day (Russian – Den’ Rossii) is the national holiday of the Russian federation. It has been celebrated annually on June 12 since 1992. It commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of State Sovereignty of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) on June 12, 1990. The passage of this Declaration by the First Congress of People’s Deputies marked the beginning of constitutional reform in the Russian Soviet state, in which proponents of market reform and strong statehood based on Russia’s national interests started opposing the Communist power monopoly. The country’s new name, the Russian Federation, was adopted on December 25, 1991.
In 1992, the Supreme Soviet of Russia proclaimed June 12 as a national holiday.
Today, D’Andrea & Partners Russian desk celebrates after 25 years the current prosperity and economic development of Russian Federation, and we look forward to a closer relationship with our Russian clients.
