Significantly reduce the New Year holidays was proposed by the former chief sanitary doctor, State Duma deputy Gennady Onishchenko. In his opinion, long holidays harm health and hinder the development of the economy.

As Onishchenko told the publication URA.RU, the whole planet works after the New Year, and if you need a growing economy, then lingering at the start of the year is harmful. According to the deputy, you need to go to work on January 2.

According to Onishchenko, because of the lack of entertainment in most cities, Russians are messing around, and this creates gluttony and alcohol abuse. In his opinion, flights to warm countries during the winter holidays also become a serious health test, since the body changes dramatically biorhythms and does not have time to adapt to the heat. Moreover, after returning home, a person needs to get used to the cold again, which is dangerous during the flu epidemic.

The former chief medical officer of the country has repeatedly criticized the long New Year holidays. LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky holds a similar position. At a meeting with the president, he proposed reduce the number of holidays in the January holidays.
