Seeking clarification or correction:

The Russian New Year Holiday (a public holiday) now includes January 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8.  Christmas, another public holiday, falls on January 7.

Is that the full extent of this holiday?  If possible this holiday season, did people also take Monday, December 31 off?

In essence, most launch activities this holiday season would have ended for the holidays on Friday, December 28 or Saturday, December 29.

(Most) everybody is back to work on Wednesday, January 9?
:)

It seems to me that if the launch of the Nauka module for the ISS keeps moving into the far distance and the imminent halting of the (lucrative) taxi rides for the western countries, there seems to be little point in a Russian manned programme.
