Russia's declaration of independence dates 24 Aug 1991. The Soviet Union has formally been dissolved by the declaration in Alma Ata on 21 Dec 1991. The new Russian Constitution was adopted 12 Dec 1993 by referendum, but 9 former republics and 10 former regions refused adoption. The Constitution grants sweeping powers to the President, making him the person to name the Government while the Parliament is restricted to participate in setting the national agenda and - most importantly - pass the yearly budget.
