Did that day be called the Day of Russia?

Logically, when you celebrate a national holiday with a loud name Day [insert the name of any country], choose a certain memorable date for the establishment of statehood or a great victory over the enemy that threatened its very existence.
Agree, it is strange in this case to choose the day in which the country signed in its worthlessness, in which the state proclaimed itself "independent "from their people, their lands, their conquests, glory and honor.

But this is exactly the 12 of June 1990 of the year for Russia, the day when the Russian statehood fell for the second time in a century.

Can this happen in reality? There is a certain unreality in this, as if a holiday celebrated with fanfare in our country, got into calendars by mistake from a parallel universe, a universe where everything obeys the laws of post-perestroika Russian reality.

Well, maybe then make a trip to such a universe?
