In accordance with amendments made to Article 9 of the law, “a public event cannot begin before 7:00 and end after 22:00 of the planned day, local time.”

An exception is made for public events dedicated to Russian memorial celebrations and commemorations, and public cultural events.

The law was published on the official web portal of legal information.
