State Day of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) (27/09)

On September 27, the largest subject of the Russian Federation and the largest administrative-territorial subject in the world - the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) (Yakut. Sakha Өrөspүubulүkete, Sakha Sire) celebrates Statehood Day.

For the first time, the question of the formation of the statehood of Yakutia through the determination of the status within Russia was raised in the early 1920s. In that historical period, the idea of granting Yakutia the status of an autonomous republic within the RSFSR was supported by the Soviet government and personally by V.I. Lenin. As a result, in April 1922, the relevant Decree of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee was issued, and Yakutia acquired the status of an autonomous SSR within the RSFSR.

An important stage in the formation of the statehood of this region of Russia was the proclamation of the Declaration of State Sovereignty, the Constitution of the Republic of Yakutia, the establishment of the post of President of the Republic and the renaming of the region into the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).
