On the 14th of February 1918 (1st of February according to the Julian calendar) Soviet Russia switched to the Gregorian calendar. The move was possible after the Council of People’s Commissars issued a Decree that Wednesday, 31 January 1918 was to be followed by Thursday, 14 February 1918. 13 days were thus effectively dropped from the calendar.
