Recall, Armenia adopted the Declaration of Independence at the session of the Supreme Council of Armenia on August 23, 1990. The Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic was renamed into the Republic of Armenia. On September 21, 1991, there was held a referendum on secession from the Soviet Union and the establishment of an independent state. 94.99% of the citizens of the Republic, who took part in it, voted for this. Two days later, the Supreme Council proclaimed Armenia an independent, self-sufficient state.
