The Ministry of Social Policy of the Ukraine has issued a communiqué confirming and detailing the official list of May 2016 non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, as had been announced late last year.
Last November (12-Nov-2015and 25-Sep-2015), the Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine had issued the "Disposition number 1155 of November 11", specifying the official list of 2016 non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, a list which included additional non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, some of these additional non-working public holidays in the Ukraine falling in May 2016.
As was done in the past (12-Dec-2015, 13-Nov-2014, 21-Nov-2013, 30-May-2012, 23-Apr-2012, 01-Mar-2012, 20-Jun-2011, 24-Feb-2011, 13-Aug-2010, 10-Dec-2008, 29-Nov-2007, and 23-Dec-2005), these additional one-off bridge public holidays were to be compensated by corresponding working Saturdays.
The aforementioned communiqué goes on to re-iterate (17-Nov-2014) that the "Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation", on May 8, as declared last year, would be a regular working day, and not a non-working public holiday in the Ukraine.
