Initially, it was named Adoption Day of the Declaration of Sovereignty of the Russian Federation, on February 1, 2002 it was officially renamed Feast of Russia (in 1998 Boris Yeltsin was offered this name socially). There is a misconception in Russian that this holiday is also called Russia iss independence day, but it had never been such a name in the official documents. According to the Levada Center survey in May 2009, 44% of those surveyed described the holiday as Russia iss Independence Day.
