According to the press secretary of Russian President Dmitry Pevkov, the Kremlin does not appreciate the proposal to reduce the New Year holidays because of the coronavirus pandemic. They come from established practice. 

According to RIA News, the Ministry of Labor noted that the January non-working days are fixed in the Labor Code and all changes need to be made only after agreement with the employees and employers. At the same time, the Federation of Independent Trade Unions said they would not support the bill.

Earlier, the head of the economic committee of the Council of the Federation, Andrei Kutepov, sent to the Ministry of Labor and the federal government a draft law on the reduction of the New Year holidays in 2021. It is supposed to be a working week from January 4 to 8, with the exception of the seventh.
