The Russian-appointed authorities in the annexed part of the Zaporizhia region have announced that the part of the region they control will not switch to winter time.
“In the Zaporozhye region, the old time remains. There will be no translation of the clock hands in 2022, ”- says in the official telegram channel of the administration of the annexed part of the region.
“We live in the Russian Federation and our city lives according to Moscow time. All the rumors that Ukraine suits you and says about changing time zones and switching to winter time, I ask you to ignore,” Alexander Volga, who headed the administration of Energodar after the Russian invasion, explained the corresponding decision.
Ukraine switches to winter time on the night of October 30. Russia abandoned seasonal clock changes back in 2011.
Russia de facto controls two-thirds of the territory of the Zaporozhye region. The capital of the region, the city of Zaporozhye, is under Ukrainian control.
