Ukraine switches to summer time this weekend

Ukraine on March 26 (the night from Saturday to Sunday) will move to summer time by putting the clock one hour forward, the press service of the Economic Development and Trade Ministry reports. 

“In line with a resolution by the Cabinet of Ministers as of May 13, 1996, No.509, ‘On the procedure for calculating time in the territory of Ukraine,” summer time will be introduced in the territory of Ukraine on March 26 at 3 a.m. by putting the clock one hour forward,” reads a report.

In 2011, the Verkhovna Rada issued a resolution to cancel the switching to winter time, but following public debates it wasn’t approved.
