MOSCOW, April 01.1 /ITAR-TASS/. The presidential administration has approved a bill on the return to daylight saving time. The bill will come up at the State Duma at first reading on April 15, Head of the Duma committee on health protection Sergei Kalashnikov, who initiated the bill, told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.
Russia performed its last switch to daylight saving time on March 27, 2011, and clock hands across the country was set one hour forward. Daylight saving time aims at a better use of daylight and energy saving.
The first daylight saving time decree in Russia was issued by the Provisional Government on July 1, 1917. The Council of People’s Commissars of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic ordered to fall back on December 22, 1917. Clock hands were moved one hour forward on June 16, 1930, and there was no fall back in autumn. The country started living by the so called decree time – one hour ahead of the entire planet.
Daylight saving time in Russia resumed in 1981. Since the degree time was not abolished, Russia is two hours ahead of its time zone.
