The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation has officially gazetted its previously-announced annual "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2016" (Decree No.1017 of September 24, 2015), which lists the official non-working public holidays and bridge holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2016.

A couple of months ago (2015-06-19), the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation had released a draft unnumbered decree "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2016", which as usual proposed a list of official public holidays and bridge holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2016.

As per the aforementioned Decree No.1017 of September 24, 2015, as was done in previous years (2014-08-30, 2014-05-23, 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.
