New Year Holidays to Become Shorter in Russia

Russia's Parliament has enacted a bill to increase May holidays for two days on account of the New Year holiday week. According to the bill, winter holidays will be shortened from 10 to 8 days and will last January 1-8. 

      The two additional days will be added by the Russian government to any other state holiday. Most likely it will be either the Labour Day (May 1) or the Victory Day (May 9), depending on which day will be closer to weekend for creating a long holiday week.

      Some days-off 2012 have also been changed. In particular, it was decided by the Russian government to create a long holiday period around May 9, so this year Russian people will be on holiday on May 6-9. Though they will have to work on two Saturdays, May 5 and 12. On the Labour Day there will be days-off from April 29 till May 1, with working day on Saturday, April 28.
