Earlier, Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Commission, stated that the EU intended to cancel transition to “summer” and “winter” time. It was noted that more than 80% of the respondents supported the cancellation of the daylight-savings. 4,6 million people took part in the largest online-survey in the EU.

It was also reported that daylight saving might be canceled in Ukraine. If the EU makes this decision, Ukrainian Ministry of Economic Development will ask the Cabinet of Ministers to introduce changes to the process of computation of time.
