The president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has issued a decree declaring Monday, April 23, 2012, as another one-off non-working bridge public holiday in Belarus on account of the upcoming Radunitsa non-working public holiday on April 24, 2012.
The aforementioned "On the transfer of a working day in April 2012" (Resolution of the Council of Ministers on April 2, 2012 No. 294), thus amends the list of official public holidays in Belarus for the calendar year 2012, which was released by the government of Belarus, late last year (2011-12-29).
As usual in similar past cases (2012-03-01, 2011-03-01, 2010-04-30, 2010-04-01, 2009-03-13, 2004-04-15, 2003-12-18 and 2003-04-25), in compensation for the Monday, April 23, 2012, one-off non-working public holiday, the decree specifies that Saturday, April 28, 2012, will be a regular working day throughout the Republic of Belarus.
In addition, the decree, "On holding a republican work day in 2012" (Resolution of the Council of Ministers on April 2, 2012 No. 295), issued on the same date declares Saturday, April 21, 2012, as a special "republican" working day that all citizen of Belarus must provide to the Government, without compensation.
