In Russia, the Duma passes a law making Sundays, the two days of Christmas, New Year's Day, and the two days of Easter compulsory holidays.

This means that all shops and businesses are required to be closed — including shops and businesses owned by Jews who already close on Saturdays for the Jewish sabbath.

The bill for compulsory closings on Sundays has been advocated by right-wing Russian politicians who want to use it as a way to further persecute Jews in Russia.
