Sakhalin is forced to move to the eight-hour zone with Vladivostok and Khabarovsk - Khoroshavin

October 26 on Sakhalin clock hands will be transferred to winter time. This will reduce daylight hours in the region, but the region has to go to the eight-hour zone with a difference of 1 an hour from Khabarovsk and Vladivostok for ease of operation, Interfax reported, citing the region's governor Alexander Horoshavin.

“There were many proposals from both professionals and non-professionals. Not only us, but many others were not heard,” the governor commented.

A. Khoroshavin recalled that the Sakhalin region had lived for a long time in the 8 time zone (with the time difference with Moscow in the 8 hours), but at the end of the 1990-i, according to the decision of the regional authorities, moved to the seven-hour belt. He added that if this transition in the new time turns out to be uncomfortable for the residents of the region and they clearly express their position on this issue, the regional government is ready to discuss with the federal government the issue of changing the time zone.
