Description Aleksandr 2011-09-20 12:34:07 UTC
Ukraine Government abolished seasonal clock change. It was announced by Ukrainian Parliament on September 20, 2011. Ukraine will use its current Standard time zone (UTC+2) plus one hour.

There is still no info on WorldTimeZone.com. Most probably it will be during next couple of days.

Comment 6 J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) 2011-10-20 10:26:28 UTC
Coverage on the upstream tzdata mailing list suggests that the abolishment of seasonal clock changes has itself been abolished - in other words, Ukraine will still be switching from "summer time" to "winter time" in some days.

"[tz] Ukraine to keep winter time after all", <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2011-October/008116.html>;
"[tz] Short notice: Ukraine invalidates law to introduce permanent DST", <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2011-October/008117.html>

This is covered at <http://www.worldtimezone.com/dst_news/> as well, through <http://www.worldtimezone.com/dst_news/dst_news_ukraine05.html>.

Comment 7 Petr Machata 2011-10-20 11:14:53 UTC
Indeed it was.  The new packages have been spun.

Comment 8 Aleksandr 2011-10-20 13:06:37 UTC
Yes, I could confirm.
But there is still a need of changed package for Belarus.

Comment 9 J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) 2011-10-20 13:59:48 UTC
Certainly. This bugzilla entry is for Ukraine though. The Belarus change is being tracked through bug 740000 (RHEL6), bug 739668 (RHEL5), bug 740001 (RHEL4) and bug 740014 (RHEL3 ELS).
