Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has announced that next week, March 30 to April 3, 2020, would be a weeklong public holiday "with pay".
The aforementioned declaration of March 30 to April 3, 2020, as public holidays thus further amends (2020-02-26) the official list of Russia's 2020 public holidays, as released in draft form by the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation (2019-05-06) and later approved by the Government of the Russian Federation (2019-07-13).
Note, however that, in his address to the nation, Russian President, Vladimir Putin, announced that the April 22 constitutional referendum, and related public holiday (2020-02-26), would need to be postponed ("I believe that the vote needs to be postponed to a later date. We will see how the situation unfolds in the regions and in the country on the whole, and will make a decision on a new date based on expert opinion").
