The article is devoted to the Russian Federation ex-president B. Yeltsyn’s individual (one-time) legal act dd October 15, 1993, №1633 “Regulation on the Countrywide Voting on the RF Constitution of December 12, 1993”, in accordance to which the “countrywide” voting was held based on the “presidential’ draft Constitution with no taking into account of other drafts including the official draft developed by the Constitutional Committee of the First Meeting of the RSFSR People’s deputies, this contradicting the RSFSR Law dd October 16, 1990, №241-1 “On the referendum in RSFSR”.

A conclusion is made about the illegitimacy of the named ”Regulation” and the countrywide voting based on it, and at least about illegality of the results obtained with its usage.

Keywords: Constitution; president and ex-president; constitutional reform; countrywide (national) voting; seizure of power; legitimacy
