Holidays in Russia
Recall that last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the introduction of non-working days in the country from October 30 to November 7 due to the aggravation of the epidemiological situation in the country.
As stated by the press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov, the Russian authorities are not yet planning additional measures to support citizens due to the introduction of long non-working days.
