The Russian Government has not yet announced if it would declare May 4-5-6, 2022, as additional public holidays, and create an 11-day period of continuous public holidays, from April 30 until May 10, 2022, as was done last year.

Recall that, last year, Russian President, Vladimir Putin, signed a decree declaring May 4-7, 2021, as non-working public holidays in Russia (2021-04-23). These additional 2021 public holidays meshed-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.

The list of 2022 public holidays in Russia (Постановление Правительства РФ от 16.09.2021 N 1564 "О переносе выходных дней в 2022 году") was gazetted late last summer (2021-09-17) and includes May Day public holidays from April 30 to May 3, followed by Victory Day public holidays running from May 7-10.
