According to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers №509 "On the procedure for calculating time on the territory of Ukraine" of May 13, 1996, every year there is a transition to summer (the hands are moved one hour forward on the last Sunday of March) and winter (the hands are turned back an hour on the last Sunday of October) time.
This year, the clock shift coincides with the date of the local elections. So, Ukrainians will switch to winter time on the night of Saturday, October 24, to Sunday, October 25. At 4:00 a.m., the hands of the clock will be turned back one hour.
As we reported earlier, after the European Union decided to cancel changing of time twice a year, this issue was also raised in Ukraine. Not for the first time, but earlier it was not possible to reach an agreement.
"If the EU decides to cancel the transition to daylight saving time, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade will contact the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine about the possibility of making such changes," the ministry commented.
