Russia marks Constitution Day

Russia's Constitution Day marks the adoption of the country's Statute of Law which came into being in a referendum on December 12, 1993.

This day became one of the most important for Russian law-makers.

It took in all the basic norms of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the UN passed in 1948 and replaced the Constitution adopted in 1977 which led to the political crisis in 1993.
