Russia Day is a national holiday of the Russian Federation, celebrated on June 12. It has been celebrated every year since 1992. The First Congress of People`s Deputies of the Russian Federation adopted the Declaration of State Sovereignty of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic on June 12, 1990.
The Russian flag and a two-headed eagle, the state symbols of the Russian Federation, are the most common symbols of Russia Day.
Today Russians attend concerts and fireworks that take place in many cities throughout the country, while prominent Russian writers, scientists and humanitarian workers receive State Awards from the President of Russia.
EEUA is glad to congratulate everyone with this big significant holiday and wishes a pleasant day to everyone!
