Women's Day Holiday

MOSCOW -- March 7, 8 and 9 of this year have been declared official holidays in Russia, government spokesman Igor Shabdurasulov said Tuesday.

Because the holiday of March 8, celebrating International Women's Day, falls on a Sunday, the next working day, Monday, will be a day off.
