Ukraine's Parliamentary Committee on Labor has agreed to support a bill which would restore the celebration of the October Socialist Revolution as an official non-working public holiday in the Ukraine.

The October Socialist Revolution was abolished as an official non-working public holiday in the Ukraine, a decade ago (2000-02-01), as per the gazetted law, Act No. 1421-XIV of 1 February 2000 to amend section 73 of the Labour Code (Text No. 53), which took effect on of February 25, 2000. Since then, the anniversary of the October Revolution is no longer be a public holiday in the Ukraine.

Note that, despite its name, the anniversary of the October Revolution occurs on November 7 (because the October date it refers to is the date in the Orthodox calendar).
