Further-eastern European Time
Further-eastern European Time (FET) is since September 2011 three hours ahead of UTC (UTC+03:00). It was started as the official time for the Russian Kaliningrad Oblast and then followed by Belarus, Northern Cyprus, and Turkey.
Until 2011, Further-eastern European Time was the same as Eastern European Time (UTC+2. on 27 March 2011, Russia moved to the so called "year-round daylight saving time". Belarus followed Russia on September 15, 2011. Both Turkey and Northern Cyprus also cancelled DST on September 7, 2016, and has switched to FET permanently.
