Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on the postponement of the weekend in 2022. This was announced by the Cabinet of Ministers.

In the new year, January 1 and 2 fall on Saturday and Sunday. Since these are non-working holidays, it was decided to postpone them to Tuesday, May 3, and Tuesday, May 10, respectively.

In addition, the non-working Saturday, March 5, has been moved to Monday, March 7, so that citizens have three days off in a row: from March 6 to 8 (from Sunday to Tuesday).

In total, in 2022, Russians will have six holiday periods: from January 1 to 9 (9 days), from March 6 to 8 (3 days-from Sunday to Tuesday), from April 30 to May 3 (4 days - from Saturday to Tuesday), from May 7 to 10 (4 days – from Saturday to Tuesday), from June 11 to 13 (3 days – from Saturday to Monday), from November 4 to 6 (3 days – from Friday to Sunday).
