Russian Unity Day


On November 4, the Russians celebrate National Unity Day, the key idea is unity. Unity is the only means of overcoming the "time of troubles", the most turbulent periods in Russian history.

In 1612 Dmitry Pozharsky and Kuzma Minin gathered an all-Russian volunteer army and expelled the forces of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth from Moscow, in 1941-1945 during the Great Patriotic War against Nazi Germany, as well as nowadays in the course of Russia-Ukraine international armed conflict.

The policy of national unity is a complex phenomenon. The basis of unity is the coherence of the country, including cultural, educational, and scientific components.

The Constitution identifies the multinational people as the bearer of sovereignty and the only source of power in the country. It can be taken by other сountries as an example for the peaceful coexistence and development of different confessions and ethnic groups.
