Izvestia writes about this with reference to the head of the Ministry of Labor Anton Kotyakov. The minister said that a draft resolution on public holidays in 2024 had been prepared and would be published soon.

Three holidays await Russians on February 23 and March 8, since Defender of the Fatherland Day and International Women’s Day fall on Friday next year. There are no plans to shorten the New Year holidays; according to Kotyakov, they will last exactly until January 8. The minister stressed that the department tried to maintain a balance between the New Year holidays and May in order to continue to provide full-fledged New Year holidays. At the same time, Kotyakov reminded that there are constant calls to shorten the New Year holidays, but to increase the number of days off in early May, so that there is no work break between May 1 and May 9.

Thus, in July, the State Duma may consider a bill proposing to fix the long may in the Labor Code. The authors of the bill – Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Vladislav Davankov (New People’s faction), deputies Alexei Nechaev, Anna Skroznikova, Anton Tkachev and Georgy Arapov and others – propose to reduce the New Year holidays by four days and increase the May holidays in the same four days. Therefore, the days from January 1 to January 3 should remain non-working days in January. But in May, the days from the 1st to the 5th will become non-working days.

At the same time, experts consider such a transfer inappropriate. “In May, there is a planting season. The long May holidays for agricultural enterprises are a doubling of wages. The consequence of this will be an increase in food prices,” said Alexander Safonov, a professor at the Financial University of the Government of Russia. Federation. He recalls that today one of the main tasks of the State is the fight against inflation.
