On Sunday, October 28, Ukraine is switching to winter time.
The daylight-saving takes place in Ukraine according to the regulation of the Cabinet of Ministers as of May 13, 1996, on the procedure for calculating of time in Ukraine.
“To introduce the following order for calculating of time in Ukraine: the time of the second time zone (Kyiv time) with changing the clock on last Sunday of March at 3 am for one hour forward and on the last Sunday of October at 4 am for one hour back,” the document says.
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.
