Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has signed into law amendments to Article 112 of Russia's Labour Code, extending the New Year public holidays from 2 to 5 working days, as well as changing some other public holidays.

The State Duma, the lower house of parliament, had already passed the bill on December 24 (24-Dec-2004) and the Federation Council, the upper house of parliament, approved it on Monday, December 27, 2004.

The new public holidays bill should, as per the Government Decree of 27.12.2004 N 845 "On the transfer of the day in 2005" (27 December 2004), go into effect immediately (ie. in January 2005).
