Posted: Tuesday, April 28, 2020
Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has announced that the current Covid19 public holidays would be extended until May 11, 2020, inclusively ("even in an ordinary situation many would prefer to stay off work [on May 6, 7 and 8], to take paid leaves, and now there are still fewer reasons to take risks").
Last month (2020-03-25), Russian President, Vladimir Putin, had announced that March 30 to April 3, 2020, would be public holidays, thus amending 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).
The string of Covid19 public holidays in Russia was later extended until April 30, 2020 (2020-04-02).
Note that, as per the aforementioned official list of Russia's 2020 public holidays, the dates of May 6-8, 2020, were already non-working public holidays in Russia.
