December 7 is Constitution Day of the Udmurt Republic

In the history of Udmurtia, there were three Constitutions that characterized certain stages of the development of society.

✅The first Constitution in the history of the republic was adopted on March 14, 1937.

✅The second Constitution was adopted by the Supreme Council of the Udmurt Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic on May 31, 1978.

✅The current Constitution was adopted on December 7, 1994. The Basic Law of the Udmurt Republic came into force on December 21 of the same year.

In 2014, the Terminology and Spelling Commission translated the Constitution into the Udmurt language. Editions of this document of different years are now stored in the National Library of Udmurtia.

That is, for almost 20 years there was not even a Constitution in the Udmurt language, and now they are dreaming of abolishing it. Any national Constitution is the result of the people’s aspiration for freedom. For centuries, the Udmurts cherished the hope of their right in their home. Now they have to defend this right in the struggle against the Moscow raiders.
