Historic Return

Events marked the end of XX century in world history departure from the historical arena of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Litecoin is full of insight into the issues. In its place arose a huge number of independent states. The Russian Federation remains the largest on the Eurasian continent. As before the other states in Russia is considering the issue of state symbols: the anthem, flag and coat of arms. In 1993, the Decree of the President of Russia Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin, the new coat of arms adopted in slightly modified form the major part of the Small State Emblem of Russian empire. The country thus has inherited all that was best achieved by the Russian heraldry for many centuries. In December 2000 the first State Duma and Federation Council then adopted the federal law on state emblem, flag and anthem.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed such laws. Article 1 of the Federal Law on the National Emblem of Russian an official state symbol of Russia is described as follows: The State Emblem of the Russian Federation is a rectangular with rounded bottom corners and a pointed red heraldic shield with a golden double-headed eagle spreading its wings upward. Eagle crowned with two small crowns, and upon them – a large crown, connected by a ribbon. In right claw of an eagle – a scepter in his left – power. On the breast of an eagle, a red shield – silver rider in a blue cloak on a silver horse, silver spear striking black, inverted backwards and the horse trampled the dragon. The State Emblem is absolutely no need for coins minted. Eagle on the Russian ruble is different from an eagle on the national emblem. On the ruble, he – an accurate portrait of his predecessor with the printing of the Provisional Government in 1917 year.

On the coins minted officially approved emblem of the Central Bank (CBA), and not the Russian Federation. This eagle has appeared on coins since 1993. Russia's Central Bank has begun using its mark already before double-headed eagle was adopted as the State Emblem. The basis of the Central Bank took a double-headed eagle of the Provisional Government made in 1917 by Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin. XX century was a time not so much a rejection of traditions, from glorious heritage of ancestors, as a sincere return to them, the final approval of the people that the true wealth of a nation – in its origins, its accomplishments already achieved, but not those to which people are only seeking or plan to pundits. Whatever the estimated individual events of Russian history and the historians themselves of its citizens, the state symbols of Muscovy, Russian Empire, USSR and present Russian Federation deserve scrutiny and respect.

The Democratic majority in Congress has imposed ban on the development and use of the continental shelf of the United States in 1981. The ban was not repealed either by President Bush Senior, no Clinton.

The new Bush plan also includes the authorization to use the oil reserves hidden in the depths of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge).
