The Day of Russia will become a real holiday only when the country is freed from lawlessness, arbitrariness of the bureaucracy and the state’s lies

imageGrigory Yalvinsky FB post

12.06.2017

The day of 12 June was first celebrated as Russia’s Independence Day.

This was strange for many people: from whom was this independence? In fact, by adopting the Declaration of Sovereignty on this day in 1990, Russia proclaimed its independence from the totalitarian communist rule and declared itself be a state where power belonged to a free people. As the country was turning into a state of bureaucrats (today there are almost 1.5 times more bureaucrats per capita in Russia than in a highly centralised USSR), and was more and more inheriting the lawlessness and arbitrariness of the Soviet system, the bureaucrats who got the power, decided it was they who were Russia. In fact, everything is vice versa. Russia means people living in our country, people whom these bureaucrats should serve – all of them without exception, up to top officials and the President. But we still do not have this, and therefore, the Day of Russia will become a real holiday only when the country is freed from lawlessness, arbitrariness of the bureaucracy and the state’s lies.
