Today Russia marks major holiday! Thursday is Russia Day – the country’s national holiday. The Declaration of Sovereignty was adopted in June 1990, when Russia was still a republic within the USSR. The document paved the way to a modern Russia, and is a milestone in the nation’s history.
That’s good to have a day off but a lot of Russians still does not understand what is the holiday about. Be honest I don’t either. But it’s good thing to have four days off in the row, especially when the weather is getting better :). So I don’t complain!
comments always welcome.
