Holiday weekends should be evenly distributed, and New Year’s holidays need to be reduced. This is important so that the Russians do not have weeks of rest, but only three active days each.

The corresponding statement in an interview with RIA Novosti was made by the deputy State Duma from “United Russia” Maxim Ivanov.

“It is necessary to distribute the weekend evenly so that people do not rest for weeks and do not understand what to do and do something out of idleness, but really distribute it rationally, so that there are three days off, but nevertheless for three days active recreation would be good for everyone, ”the parliamentarian shared his view on this issue.

At the same time, the deputy said that, in his opinion, there was no need to shorten the May holidays. He explained his position by the fact that during this period the Russians are engaged in sowing. In this regard, Ivanova believes, the long May weekend, on the contrary, is beneficial, not harmful.

Formerly Public News Service informedthat the State Duma proposed to make public transport free for schoolchildren in the winter. Deputy of the State Duma Vasily Vlasov sent a corresponding appeal to the Minister of Transport of Russia Vitaly Savelyev.
