Senator Sergei Kalashnikov reacted critically to the idea of colleagues to cut new year holidays to three days. In his opinion, such a proposal should not have a right to life.

From the point of view of the economy, cuts in holidays, maybe, and logical. But from the point of view of human relations it is impossible to deprive people of traditional new year holidays.

People are accustomed to the fact that we have a long vacation. And, despite the fact many people vacationing in March and April, the rest can not be called, to deprive people of the Christmas holidays, I think it would be unfair, — said the Senator in an interview with NSN.

Earlier reported that Russia could reduce the new year holidays. This bill was sent to the Ministry of labor head of the economic Committee of the Federation Council Andrey Kutepov. He suggested that in 2021 to cut new year holidays to 1-3 Jan.
