Time in Russia

Time in Russia

There are eleven time zones in Russia from UTC+2 to UTC+12—more than in any other country of the world.

The time zones are as follows:

The only federal subjects to be in more than one time zone are the Sakha Republic, which is separated into areas which observe the Yakutsk, Vladivostok and Magadan time zones, and Sakhalin Oblast, which is in the Vladivostok (island Sakhalin) and Magadan time zones (Kuril Islands).

Daylight saving time

Russia's time zones change over to daylight saving time on dates in accordance with European Summer Time; moving clocks forward one hour at 02:00 local winter time on the last Sunday in March and back one hour at 03:00 local daylight time on the last Sunday in October. Russia does not follow the 01:00 UTC changeover rule for daylight saving.
