  1. A secular State has the right to establish public holidays based on social and cultural considerations. Christmas is celebrated by the majority of Russian residents , which is why the state recognizes a de facto holiday de jure. Thus, the government sends a signal to the people that it respects and shares their values.

  2. And how does this contradict the Constitution? After all, what is written in article 14?�

    “1. The Russian Federation is a secular state. No religion can be established as a State or compulsory religion.

    1. Religious associations are separated from the State and are equal before the law.”

    I do not see any violation of this article in the celebration of Christmas.
