In Chechnya, three days off have been announced for the celebration of Eid al-Adha

In Chechnya, one of the main Muslim holidays – Eid al-Adha-will be celebrated for three days. The corresponding decree was signed by the head of the republic Ramzan Kadyrov.

A document published on the website of the head and government of Chechnya says that on the basis of an appeal from the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of the republic, July 19, 20 and 21 are declared non-working days.

Eid al-Adha is celebrated for three days. This year, it begins to be celebrated on Tuesday, July 20.

Eid al-Adha is not included in the list of official holidays, but the Labor Code of the Russian Federation allows regions to establish additional non-working days.

Earlier, July 20 was declared a day off in Ingushetia, Dagestan, Bashkiria, Tatarstan, Adygea, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia and in the Crimea, where many adherents of Islam live.
