Sakhalin to Make Time Zone Change on March 27, 2016

 


Korsakov Seaside in Sakhalin Oblast, Russia by Raita Futo (Flickr)Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, signed a time zone change into law for Sakhalin in March, 2016. The change is set to take effect on March 27th, 2016 at 2:00 am local time (which is March 26th, 2016 at 18:00 in UTC).

The change will move the offset from +1000 to +1100 for Sakhalin but will not affect the Vladivostok Time (VLAT) time zone name. The primary city that will be affected by this change includes Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

Zabaykalsky Krai, located in Siberia, and Astrakhan Oblast, located in southern Russia, will also see a time change thanks to federal law. That change is also scheduled to happen on March 27, 2016.
