On Wednesday, March 3, the Verkhovna Rada adopted as a basis the draft law No. 4201, which provides for the abolition of the transfer of hours.

277 out of 370 people present in the hall voted for the corresponding document .

The initiator of the bill is Ruslan Stefanchuk, First Deputy Speaker, People’s Deputy from the Servant of the People party .

“ On March 27-28, 2021, the next change of clocks to daylight saving time is planned. I appeal, let’s vote on Bill 4201 and save Ukraine from this annual transition, the benefits of which have not been proven, but the harm is obvious, ”he said.

The bill, which provides for the establishment and consolidation of a single Kiev time on the territory of Ukraine and the refusal of further seasonal translation of the clock hands, was submitted to parliament in October 2020.

On February 18, 2021, this document was supported by the Committee on Economic Development.

In Ukraine, on the night of March 28, the clock hands are shifted one hour forward – this is how the daylight saving time changes. For winter time, the clock hands are set back one hour on the last Sunday in October.
