A ukase or ukase (, ukaz ) was in the Russian Empire a proclamation of the Tsar or patriarch which had the force of law. The Ukase of Ems prohibiting the use of the Ukrainian by the population in is an example. This term perhaps transcribed in Roman law by Decree or edict.
After the Revolution of 1917, the proclamations of the government having an significant impact are indicated under the term of Décret (: декрет, dekret); the proclamations with the range more limited are called ukaz. The two terms are usually transcribed in Décret.
According to the Constitution of the Federation of Russia of 1993, a ukaz is an order in Council. These ukases have the force of law but cannot modify the application of existing laws and can be repealed by laws by the Federal Assemblée.
