Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has signed a 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.
Today's announcement that President Putin had declared Wednesday, June 24, 2020, as a one-off non-working public holiday, confirms the reports which, last week (2020-05-20), foretold of a June 24 public holiday.
Except that, those reports mentioned the declaration of a June 24 public holiday in Russia, as replacement for the April 22 constitutional referendum, and related public holiday, which were postponed due to the current Covid19 pandemic (2020-05-20, 2020-03-25, 2020-02-26 and 2020-02-15).
