Update: July, 5, 2016

If the federal law proposal is approved, clocks in Novosibirsk Oblast will be turned forward 1 hour from 02:00 (2 am) to 03:00 (3 am) local time on July 24, 2016.

A Very Likely Change

The change would also affect the Siberian oblast's administrative center in Novosibirsk.

The time zone proposal for Novosibirsk comes in addition to several recent time zone changes in Russia this year, and it is very likely this proposal also will go through.

Forward 1 Hour

Novosibirsk's UTC offset would go from UTC+6 to UTC+7, giving it the same local time as Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Norilsk, and Khatanga.

Other New Time Zones

There have been several recent time zone changes in Russia: Tomsk Oblast turned its clocks 1 hour forward on May 29, 2016 and Magadan Oblast added 1 hour on April 24, 2016.

On March 27, 2016, another 6 areas in Russia shifted to a new time zone, including the cities Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Chita, Gorno-Altaysk, Barnaul, Ulyanovsk, and Astrakhan.

Historic Changes

Russia has a history of time zone changes. In 2014, the country added 2 time zones and stopped using permanent Daylight Saving Time (DST).
