On Saturday night, Russia takes hours

October 24 2005

Throughout Russia on Sunday, October 30 at 3:00 am local time, set the clock back one hour.

At the present time "seasonal" hands of a clock transfer occurs in more than 110 countries. For the first time this procedure was carried out in Britain in 1908.

In Russia, the transition to daylight saving time for the first time was in 1917, and since 1981, daylight saving time once again started to regularly operate.

Several years ago a group of Duma deputies proposed to cancel the "seasonal" transfer hands of a clock on the grounds that it allegedly has a negative impact on human health. But scientists could not prove that human bio-rhythms in the transition to a different time severely violated, reports Interfax .
