Ukraine to switch to winter time on Oct 28

Ukraine will switch to winter daylight saving time in the early hours of Sunday, October 28, when the clocks will go backwards one hour.

According to Ukrinform, the transfer to summer and winter time is regulated by a Cabinet of Ministers resolution of May 13, 1996 on the procedure for calculating time in Ukraine.

According to the document, the clocks in Ukraine are moved one hour forward on the last Sunday of March at 3 o'clock and one hour backwards on the last Sunday of October at 4 o'clock.

The European Commission proposes abandoning the practice of switching to summer and winter time in the EU member states from 2019.

In 2011, the Verkhovna Rada tried to cancel the moving of clocks to winter time in Ukraine but the decision was repealed under public pressure.
