The First Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus, Vladimir Semashko, has issued a decree declaring Monday, April 27, 2009, as a one-off non-working bridge public holiday in Belarus on account of the upcoming Radunitsa (Ancestors Veneration Day) on Tuesday, April 28, 2009.

The aforementioned decree thus amends the list of official public holidays in Belarus for the calendar year 2009, which was released by the government of Belarus, late last year (2008-12-19).

As usual in similar past cases (2006-12-20, 2004-04-15, 2003-12-18 and 2003-04-25), in compensation for the Monday, April 27, 2009, one-off non-working public holiday, the Decision of the Council of Ministers of 12.03.2009 No.306 ("On the transfer of the working day in April 2009") specifies that Saturday, April 25, 2009, will be a regular working day throughout the Republic of Belarus.
