Russia Declares July 1st Constitutional Public Holiday
Posted: Monday, June 1, 2020
Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has announced that July 1st, 2020, would be the date of the Russian vote on amendments to the Constitution, a date which will be another one-off public holiday in Russia.
Today's announcement that President Putin had declared Wednesday, July 1st, 2020, as a one-off non-working public holiday, comes on the heels of last week's decree declaring Wednesday, June 24, 2020, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Russia, on account of the victory parades and artillery salute to mark the 75th anniversary of Victory over Nazism (2020-05-29 and 2020-05-20).
Early reports of a June 24 public holiday in Russia, had been as replacement for the April 22 constitutional referendum, and related public holiday, which were postponed due to the current Covid19 pandemic (2020-03-25, 2020-02-26 and 2020-02-15).
