Time in Russia
The exact time in Russia is based on the time zones for Russia. We will always try to give you the exact time for Russia. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Russia might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Russia are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Russia, and falls back one hour in the fall for Russia. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Russia to improve its tourism and depend less on Russia's electricity supplies.
