LVOV, October 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The Transcarpathian region, the westernmost territory of Ukraine, is switching to the winter time although the shift has been abolished by the Verkhovna Rada.
Starting from October 17 all the enterprises, governmental agencies and educational establishments will start their work one hour later, the Uzhgorod city administration said.
Ukraine’s western regions asked the president and the parliament to return the winter time or to allow them to have the local time. Leader of the Party of Regions faction at the Verkhovna Rada Alexander Yefremov agreed that Ukraine is a large country with several time zones. “Before approving the law, which cancelled the winter time, the parliament consulted experts, including those from the Health Ministry. We will not review our decision until we receive appeals from relevant structures,” the deputy said.
Ukraine lives by East European time, which is Moscow time minus one hour. The Transcarpathian region unofficially lives by Central European time, which it calls the local time.
