Primorye will be one hour closer to Moscow

As the press service of the legislative assembly of the Primorsky Territory reports, deputies of the regional policy and legality committee of the regional parliament yesterday supported an appeal to the Russian government to transfer the Primorsky Territory from the MSK + 7 time zone to MSK + 6.

On this, on the eve of the Legislative Assembly received a letter from the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Arkady Dvorkovich. In it, the official asked to consider an appeal to the Prime Minister to establish in Russia a system of calculating time close to zonal values. As a result, Primorye should be one hour closer to Moscow. “The deputies have already expressed that we have too much difference with Moscow,” said Dzhambulat Tekiev, chairman of the committee on regional policy and legality. - Primorye is in unequal conditions with its neighbors in the APR - although we are in the same time zone, the time difference is significant. Today we supported an appeal to the government with the aim of moving from one time zone to another ”.

In addition, the State Duma deputies intend to ask the prime minister to return the "winter" time to the Russians.

Thus, if Primorye switches to a new time zone, and in the fall the country adopts "winter" time, then the hands of all clocks in the region will be moved back two hours.
