In Russia any more there will be no time zone MSK+1
last Sunday March of an arrow on hours will translate not all. Moscow and 77 more subjects of Federation will move on an hour forward, having passed thereby on “ summer “ time, and five regions have decided not to do it. And in Minpromtorge Russia has already approved such demands which have arrived from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskij, Anadyr, Kemerovo, Izhevsk and Samara.
Yesterday it became known that in Victor Khristenko`s department projects of the corresponding governmental orders of Russia from which follows are prepared that Udmurtiya and the Samara region pass to the Moscow time, and Kamchatka and Chukotka - for the period of Magadan. Thereby in Russia the most east is abolished - the eleventh time zone, and disorder of time between the most western (Kaliningrad region) and (Chukotka) suburbs of our country is reduced by the most east with present 10 till 9 o`clock.
Conversations on possibility such “ consolidations “ were conducted for a long time, but in a practical plane the theme of time zones has passed in the autumn of 2009 - after it was accented in the Message to Federal Meeting by the president of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
After many ideas and offers, including rather radical - have been stated it reducing a difference in time between Moscow and Vladivostok with present seven till four o`clock.
This theme was roughly discussed on the Internet and mass-media, there were many reader`s responses and on a site after our publications “ Have ungirdled “ (16. 11. 09), “ Time “ CH “ (19. 11. 09), “ Russia does not hasten, it concentrates “ (25. 11. 2009), “ we do not hasten, and we are condensed “ (26. 11. 2009).
Radical innovations, as one would expect, were eliminated - the weighed approach has prevailed. In a case if the offered project of the governmental order will be accepted, Chukotka and Kamchatka will pass in time zone of Magadan (+8 hours to Moscow), and the Udmurt Republic and the Samara region advancing Moscow of all at one o`clock, begin to live on the Kremlin chiming clock - as there live now their nearest neighbours. Thus the time zone MSK+1 (it only two mentioned subjects of Federation formed) does not become at all. And then time difference on all border “ Moscow “ and “ Ekaterinburg “ hour zones will make two hours.
All these innovations, it is told in the decision project, come into force with 02. On March, 00 28 - in the night from Saturday to Sunday, simultaneously with transition on “ summertime “.
As appears from explanatory notes to projects of decisions on four subjects of Federation, the population in these regions “ positively concerns “ to offered changes. The similar decision was accepted the day before concerning the Kemerovo region. Now it is unique region in Western Siberia, having a difference with Moscow at four o`clock. The Novosibirsk to Kuzbas Novosibirsk, Omsk and Tomsk areas, Altay territory and Republic Altai have moved for a long time already on an hour more close to Moscow.
to Their example also Kuzbas - the governmental order of the Russian Federation " now will follow; About application in territory of the Kemerovo region of time of the fifth time zone “ it is already accepted, and governor Aman Tuleyev has charged to local officials to provide transition in other time zone so that this event has passed for inhabitants of area “ imperceptibly and without serious consequences “.
