The Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus, Sergei Sidorsky, has issued a decree declaring Monday, April 12, 2010, as a one-off non-working bridge public holiday in Belarus on account of the upcoming Radunitsa (Ancestors Veneration Day) on Tuesday, April 13, 2010.

The aforementioned decree thus amends the list of official public holidays in Belarus for the calendar year 2010, which was released by the government of Belarus, late last year (2009-12-29).

As usual in similar past cases (2009-03-13, 2006-12-20, 2004-04-15, 2003-12-18 and 2003-04-25), in compensation for the Monday, April 12, 2010, one-off non-working public holiday, the Decision of the Council of Ministers of 01.04.2010 No.490 ("On the transfer of the working day in April 2010") specifies that Saturday, April 27, 2010, will be a regular working day throughout the Republic of Belarus.
