- Further-eastern European Time
Further-eastern European Time (FET) (Kaliningrad Time in Kaliningrad Oblast in Russia, Minsk Time in Belarus) is since September 2011 defined as three hours ahead of UTC (UTC+03:00). It was established as the official time for the Russian Kaliningrad Oblast and then followed by Belarus.
Until 2011, Further-eastern European Time was identical to Eastern European Time (UTC+2; UTC+3 with daylight saving time). However, on 27 March 2011, Russia moved to the so called "year-round daylight saving time", so that clocks would remain on what had been the summer time all year round, making Kaliningrad Time permanently set to UTC+3, peculiarly placing its time ahead of countries to its east during winter. Belarus followed Russia on September 15, 2011, and the same decisions was made by the Ukrainian parliament on September 20, 2011. After strong criticism from the mass media, on 18 October 2011 the Ukrainian parliament cancelled its previous decision. Transnistria, a breakaway territory from Moldova on the Dniester river bordering Ukraine, followed Ukraine by at first adopting Further-eastern European Time but later cancelling this decision.
