UFA, 13 December 2017. /Bashinform News Agency, Alfiya Agliullina/.
At the height of the working week, the Bashinform News Agency reminds us how long we will rest for the New Year and the January holidays in 2018. According to Rostrud (Federal Labor and Employment Service), the upcoming New Year holidays for Russians, including residents of Bashkortostan, will last exactly ten days. Taking into account the transfer of the days off, the duration of the holidays turned out to be the following: from December 30, 2017 to January 8, 2018 inclusive. That is, most of us will start working on Tuesday, 9 January. Consequently, the first working week will be short in the next year.
In 2018, Russians will have 26 holiday days off. It is three days from February 23 to 25, coinciding with the Defender of the Fatherland Day, three days from June 10 to June 12 — the Day of Russia, and three days from November 3 to 5, connected with the National Unity Day.
In connection with the International Women's Day, the Russians will have a four-day vacation from March 8 to 11.
In May only five days off are approved: from April 29 to May 2 and May 9 — Victory Day.
