The Russian Government has released a draft RF Government Resolution, which specifies a proposed list of official public holidays and bridge holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2013.

The aforementioned draft Government Resolution was issued by the Russian Ministry of Labour on Friday.

As was done in previous years (21-Jul-2011, 24-Aug-2010, 10-Nov-2009, 28-Nov-2008, 11-Aug-2007, 06-Jan-2007, 11-Nov-2006, and 28-Dec-2005), whenever a fixed-date annual public holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, the preceding Monday or Friday is to be declared a one-off bridge public holiday, to be compensated by declaring a nearby Saturday to be a regular working day.

However, in a peculiar twist, the aforementioned draft resolution would move the expected February 25 day in lieu public holiday, to the beginning of May so that Russians would have non-working public holidays from May 1 to 5 and from May 9 to 12, 2013, thus addressing the multiples requests made over the years to move some of the non-working public holidays from the winter to the spring (22-Apr-2009 and 16-Nov-2008).
