The Ministry of Social Policy of the Ukraine has issued a communiqué confirming and detailing the official list of June 2017 non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, as had been announced late last year.

Last November (2017-01-01and 2016-11-15), the Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine had issued a disposition specifying the official list of 2017 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 June 2017.

Contrary to what 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), no additional one-off bridge public holidays needed to be compensated by corresponding working Saturdays.

Recall that, earlier this year (2017-01-31), the Institute of National Remembrance of the Ukraine (IPN) has released a draft law "On public holidays in Ukraine", which, among other things, would put an end to the practice of Ukrainian public holidays which fall on a weekend causing the next Monday to be declared an additional public holiday in the Ukraine, with the exception of Easter and Christmas.
