</table> The Russian SFSR (Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic aka Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic) (Росси́йская Сове́тская Федерати́вная Социалисти́ческая Респу́блика, РСФСР) was the largest and most populous of the fifteen Soviet republics, and became the modern day Russian Federation after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

[edit] History

The state was established on November 7, 1917. On July 10 1918 the 1918 Soviet Constitution was accepted. It was made into a part of the Soviet Union in 1922, an act later formalised by the 1924 Soviet Constitution. In English, the term Bolshevist Russia is commonly used for the period 1917–1922. In Russian official documents of the time it was referred to as Russian Republic (Российская республика) and Soviet Republic (Советская республика).

The country was run by the Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Russian SFSR (most recent title). Its capital was Moscow, also the capital of the Soviet Union.

Nikita Khrushchev transferred Crimea from the Russian SFSR to the Ukrainian SSR in 1955.

Russian SFSR ceased to be a part of the Soviet Union on December 12 1991, 14 days before the Soviet Union ceased to exist. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the RSFSR rejected a socialist system and went through reforms. It was renamed as the Russian Federation under the leadership of President Boris Yeltsin. The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), founded after the breakup of the Soviet Union, loosely bound the former Soviet republics, except for Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Georgia (until 1993).
