The State Duma has refused seasonal transfer of hours

“ In 1991 the Supreme body decision the decision on transition to summertime was accepted, - has reminded, making comments on the summons of session the speaker of the lower chamber of the Russian parliament Boris Gryzlov. Is it has been caused by that it was necessary to save the electric power. The economy was weak, and, probably, then this decision was fair “.

“ We, really, have got used every spring and to translate autumn hands and on a habit on it to swear, because the biorhythm human is really broken, it irritates all, all either spill out, or wake up early and do not know, where itself to put within superfluous hour. Well, I do not speak about unfortunate cows and other animals who do not understand transfer of hours and do not understand, why milkmaids come to them to other time “ - Medvedev has told. An establishment everywhere in the country “ summer “ time, the president has underlined, will be useful. He has added that the decision on transition cancellation was accepted proceeding from these reasons. “ we will not pass on “ winter “ (time), we once still will test trouble, because just transition on “ summer “ time always is a reduction of a dream at one o`clock but after that troubles will end. At the same time we will have a prolonged light day. It seems to me that it would be interesting and to our country in general, more likely, it is useful., Anyway, people about it repeatedly asked me “ - Medvedev has told.
