Decree of October 10, 2020 No. 1648

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree to postpone the weekend in 2021.

In the new year, January 2 and 3 fall on Saturday and Sunday. Since these are non-working holidays, it was decided to postpone them to Friday, November 5, and Friday, December 31, respectively.

In addition, the non-working Saturday, February 20, will be postponed to Monday, February 22, so that citizens have three days off in a row: from February 21 to February 23, that is, from Sunday to Tuesday.

In total, in 2021, Russians will have seven holiday periods: from 1 to 10 January (10 days – from Friday to Sunday), from 21 to 23 February (3 days – from Sunday to Tuesday), from 6 to 8 March (3 days – from Saturday to Monday), from 1 to 3 May (3 days – from Saturday to Monday), from 8 to 10 May (3 days – from Saturday to Monday), from 12 to 14 June (3 days – from Saturday to Monday) , from 4 to 7 November (4 days – from Thursday to Sunday).
