Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has announced that he would soon sign a decree declaring May 4-7, 2021, as non-working public holidays in Russia, due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

The aforementioned declaration of May 4-7, 2021, as additional public holidays in Russia, meshes in with the previously-declared list of 2021 Russian public holidays (2020-10-16, 2020-09-25 and 2020-09-10), to create a continuous period of public holidays from May 1-10, 2021.

Similar Covid-19 related public holidays were also declared last year (2020-05-11, 2020-04-28, 2020-04-02 and 2020-03-25).
