Time Zone in the Occupied Areas in Ukraine

Officially, Ukraine only has one standard time zone: Eastern European Standard Time (EET).

However, in the Russian occupied areas of Donetsk, Luhansk, and Crimea, the de facto (in practice) time zone is Moscow Standard Time (MSK).

Because of the current Russian invasion, there may be other areas that will de facto use MSK. We will update the times of the affected areas as the Russia-Ukraine war unfolds.
