When Does DST Start and End in Russia?

Despite having used Daylight Saving Time (DST) for many years and as recently as 2010, Russia currently does not have DST.

DST First Introduced in 1917

The Soviet Union first experimented with DST in 1917, when clocks were turned forward by 1 hour. The measure was repealed only months later and, although the country's time zones underwent a number of changes in the years that followed, there was no official DST clock change from 1918 to 1980.

The USSR reintroduced DST in 1981. From 1984, the country changed its clocks simultaneously with most European countries. 2011 saw the nationwide introduction of year-round DST, ending a period of annual clock changes that had lasted for 3 decades. Following another law change in 2014, Russian clocks were turned back by 1 hour to today's all-year standard time.
