In the Far East, 4 time zones can be restored.

Sergei Kalashnikov, chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on Health Protection, told reporters following his trip to Kamchatka that the former division into 4 time zones could be restored this fall in the Far East.

If parliamentarians adopt the amendments to the federal law "On the Calculation of Time" in their current form, then on October 26 residents of the most densely populated part of the Far Eastern Federal District will have to turn the arrows back two hours. Thus, the Khabarovsk Territory, Primorye and the Jewish Autonomous Region will live in the same belt with Yakutia and the Amur Region (the difference with Moscow is +6).

Sakhalin Oblast will keep the usual 7-hour difference with the capital. The Magadan Region and Chukotka, posted on the official website of the State Duma of Russia, the bill proposes to transfer from the zone MSK + 8 to the "Sakhalin" zone MSK + 7.

Kamchatka, according to Kalashnikov, “wants to live not according to astronomical time, but ahead of it by 1 hour, that is, UTC +12. At the same time, the time gap with Moscow will be increased to 9 hours, since the capital will switch to its comfortable astronomical time UTC +3. Thus, the famous phrase "in Moscow - three in the afternoon, in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky - midnight" will again become relevant. "
