On June 12, 1990 Soviet leaders signed a declaration of Russia’s state sovereignty. That document symbolized the beginning of democratic reforms in Russia. It also marked one of the first steps to the official dissolution of the Soviet Union. Only in 2004, June 12 became officially a public holiday.
To celebrate the National day, the Russian embassy in Israel hosted a glamorous reception at the Hilton Tel-Aviv Hotel, in honor of this meaningful occasion. The honored Russian ambassador to Israel Sergey Yakovlvich Yakovlev welcomed warmly his guests.
