The decision to rename the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic as the Republic of Kazakhstan was made

In early December of 1991, the leaders of the three countries: Russia - Boris Yeltsin, Ukraine - Leonid Kravchuk and Belarus - S. Shushkevich signed the Belovezhsk treaty on the denunciation of the union agreement of 1922. The collapse of the USSR, in fact, was legally registered. The republics, which were the parts of the Soviet Union, formed independent and sovereign states.

The Supreme Council decided to rename the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic as the Republic of Kazakhstan on December 10, 1991.
