A bill has been introduced to the Russian State Duma which would make amendments to the Labor Code concerning national holidays, and in particular declare December 31 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Russia.

In compensation for the declaration of December 31 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Russia, the aforementioned bill would mandate that the day after Christmas, January 8, be a regular working day in Russia.

As per the official decree (Government Decree of 27.08.2014 No.860) listing annual non-working public holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2015, January 1-11, 2015, will be non-working public holidays in Russia (30-Aug-2014), a trend initiated almost a decade ago (30-Dec-2004).
