Congratulations on the day of our great country, the Day of Russia!

12 june
Dear Russians! Full of proud for our favorite country, we want to congratulate You with our great holiday - Russia Day!
The origins of the holiday are in 1990 - just on 12 June 1990 at the first Congress of people's deputies of the RSFSR adopted the "Declaration on state sovereignty of the RSFSR". Then Russia, as a Republic, not seceded from the Soviet Union, it gained a certain degree of political freedom from other members. 
In 1994, Boris Yeltsin (the first President of a democratic Russia, by the way, chosen by the people to his post is also on 12 June, 1991)  established a new state holiday - the Day of adoption of Declaration on state sovereignty of Russia. That's when the day became a legal holiday for all Russians. 
Before June 12, was associated with the independence Day of Russia, but Boris Yeltsin proposed to rename the holiday in a simple and understandable to all Day of Rusia. The name of the holiday, the legislation was signed on 1 February 2002.
On this day honoring outstanding citizens of our country, concerts in the squares and numerous fireworks across the country. In the Kremlin, this day is traditionally awarded the state prize, and in the regions awarded to those who distinguished merit at the state level.
Congratulations to all the people of our beautiful country with this wonderful unifying holiday and wish You prosperity, national unity and a bright future in our great country!
