The Government of the Russian Federation has reviewed and approved the last summer's draft decision by the Russian Ministry of Labor to postpone the days off in 2019, in the context of the announcement of the list of official non-working public holidays in Russia in the calendar year 2019.

Last July (2018-07-21), the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation had released its annual "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2019", which, as usual, proposed, for online comments by the population, a draft list of official public holidays and bridge holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2019. This was soon followed (2018-07-21) by an announcement that public debate on the "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2019", draft list of official public holidays and bridge holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2019, would end on August 3, 2018.

As per that, as yet unnumbered and undated, "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2019", and as was done in previous years (2017-10-18, 2017-09-14, 2017-05-14, 2017-03-17, 2016-08-04, 2015-09-26, 2015-06-19, 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.
