Timezones

The timezones in Russia

There are altogether 14 official timezones in Russia, but practically only 11 different times. Countries with a large distance from West to East are often devided into two or more timezones to adjust daytimes to the position of the sun. Timezones are always computed relatively to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated".

In Russia exists a time difference of up to 10 hours between the East and the West. Russia has no time difference between summer and winter. A daylight saving time doesn't exist.
