We invite you to join the celebration of the Day of Russia – June 12. This is an official day off, so you can postpone important things for a little while and visit city events.
It was the day in 1990 that the Declaration on the State Sovereignty of the RSFSR was adopted; it played an important role in the dissolution of the USSR. On the same day in 1991, the first president of the Russian Federation was elected. Many Russians call this holiday the Day of Independence of Russia.
