Luhansk, October 22. /TASS/. Self-proclaimed unrecognized Luhansk People’s Republic, which is located on the territory of the Luhansk region in eastern Ukraine, changes over to Moscow time on the night from Saturday, October 25, to Sunday, October 26, says a decree that was signed on Wednesday by the acting head of the republic, Igor Plotnitsky.
“Moscow Standard Time (UTC plus 3 hours) shall be introduced on the territory of the Luhansk People’s Republic as of 03:00 hours October 26, 2014,” the document says.
On Tuesday, parliament speaker of another East-Ukrainian self-declared unrecognized state entity, Donetsk People’s Republic, said it was about to change over to enter the Moscow time zone shortly. As the main reason for a transition to the Moscow time zone, Boris Litvinov, the legislature speaker named the fact that Moscow and Donetsk are really located in the same time zone geographically.
Alexander Zakharchenko, the Prime Minister of the Donetsk People's Republic, said earlier this week in the city of Novoazovsk: "We'll move into a time zone of our own and will live accordingly, and we'll meet the New Year (2015) living by the Moscow time."
At present, the two republics are living by the East-European Daylight Saving Time, which is officially adopted as Ukraine’s time and is one hour behind Moscow time.
