Sunday, Oct 28, 2012: Most Europeans turn clocks back as DST ends

NOTE:The UK will revert back to GMT from BST
Uncertain in Russia
In 2011, then-president Dmitry Medvedev decided to abolish winter time and stay on Daylight Saving Time, also known as "Summer Time", all year round.
However, only a year later, in late September 2012, a proposal for Russia to set the clocks back to standard time permanently was introduced and backed by current president Vladmir Putin. Whether and when this DST change will occur has not yet been made public. It could mean that Russia will follow the rest of Europe and set the clocks back on Sunday, October 28, 2012, but another possibility is that they may wait until spring 2013. timeanddate.com is following this closely and will post updates and amend the DST information for Russia as soon as a public announcement is made.
