On 26 October 2014, all Russian Time Zones moved their clocks 1 hour back to permanent Standard Time (winter time). From that point onwards Russians remained on standard time and no longer set their clocks forward.
There was as well an introduction of two new time zones for some regions of Russia that preferred to stay permanently on summer time. This change increased the number of time zones in Russia to 11 from 9.
The changes ended former President Dmitry Medvedev's move to eliminate "winter time" in 2011 and to reduce the number of time zones in Russia.
