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 (2015-11-12and 2015-09-25), 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 (2015-12-12, 2014-11-13, 2013-11-21, 2012-05-30, 2012-04-23, 2012-03-01, 2011-06-20, 2011-02-24, 2010-08-13, 2008-12-10, 2007-11-29, and 2005-12-23), these additional one-off bridge public holidays were to be compensated by corresponding working Saturdays.

The aforementioned communiqué goes on to re-iterate (2014-11-17) 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.
