The explanatory note says that every year the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity is becoming more and more popular.

“Taking into account the goals of the state aimed at preserving the priority of traditional values ​​in society in Russia, which is also enshrined in the Constitution of the Russian Federation, it seems necessary to attach particular importance to this holiday date, creating and strengthening the historically established family values ​​in the minds of society, celebrating the celebration of this date as a non-working weekend day," the document says.

Earlier, a member of the State Duma Committee on Labour, Social Policy and Veterans Affairs, Svetlana Bessarab, as Izvestia writes, commented on the possibility of making the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity on July 8 a non-working holiday.

She explained that the Labor Code of the Russian Federation provides for 14 non-working calendar holidays, and the introduction of additional holidays will create a great burden on the country's economy.
