Day of friendship and unity of the Slavs (25/06)

On June 25, the Slavs of the whole world, and this is more than 300 million people, celebrate the Day of Friendship and Unity of the Slavs.

This holiday was established in the 90s of the 20th century and was created so that different branches of the Slavic peoples would remember their historical roots, strive to preserve their culture and centuries-old connection with each other. It appeared as a result of the collapse of the USSR, when more independent Slavic states were formed, and there was a need to establish friendly and partnership relations in the new conditions.

The first states to take serious steps in this direction were Russia and Belarus: they signed a number of agreements on mutual cooperation on equal terms.
