13.
The text in Russian is published in Argumenty I Fakti, March 1992. Since this paper was written, the constitution of the Russian Republic expected to be adopted in 1992 remains in draft. In view of the continuing conflict between the Russian Republic Congress of People's Deputies and President Yeltsin, it seems unlikely that a new Russian Republic constitution will be adopted in the foreseeable future.
