On 8 February 2011, the Russian government announced the abandonment of winter time in all time zones across Russia. Moscovians set their clocks forward on 27 March 2011, and then UTC+4 became its standard time permanently.
In July 2014, the law to observe summer time year round was abandoned, and the clock has been set to UTC+3 starting from 26 October 2014.
