The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation has released its annual "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2017", which, as usual, proposes a draft list of official public holidays and bridge holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2017.
However, this year, as was the case for the first time last year, some of the day in lieu public holidays that would have been mandated by the amendments to Article 112 of Russia's Labour Code (2004-12-30), have been moved to dates that would in previous years have been bridge public holidays to be compensated by a working Saturday, a practice which has not been very productive.
