Thus, at the end of the second week of October, residents of Ukraine will be able to rest for three days in a row and 13, 14 and 15 October. The working week will begin on Tuesday, October 16.

The day of defender of Ukraine – the state holiday and day off in 2015. It is celebrated on the 14th of October, on the day of the Holy virgin – this date has long been celebrated in Ukraine as day of the Cossacks and Ukrainian troops.

That’s why in 2015, a year after the annexation of Crimea by Russia and the beginning of the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine, it was decided to abolish the Soviet holiday – the Day of defender of Fatherland (23 February) and the establishment of the Day of defender of Ukraine on October 14.
