Ukraine to switch to winter time on 28 October

Ukraine will switch to winter daylight saving time in the early hours of Sunday, 28 October, 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 13 May 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In 2011, parliament tried to cancel the moving of clocks to winter time in Ukraine but the decision was repealed under public pressure.
