The Russian Federation's Tripartite Commission for the regulation of social and labor relations, chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, endorsed the recently-announced draft list of annual non-working public holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2015.

As the "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2015" (Decree of May 22, 2014, as yet unnumbered), and as was done in previous years (2013-06-03, 2012-10-17, 2012-09-29, 2011-07-21, 2010-08-24, 2009-11-10, 2008-11-28, 2007-08-11, 2007-01-06, 2006-11-11, and 2005-12-28), whenever a fixed-date annual public holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, the preceding Monday or Friday is usually declared a one-off bridge public holiday, to be compensated by declaring a nearby Saturday to be a regular working day.
