Country painfully emerging from recent experiments.

In the summer of 2014 after extensive consultations with the government, a law was passed which forever secured in Russia, the so-called “winter” time ( is marked by the hands on an hour ago). All regions then interviewed on the subject of in which time zone they would like to live — leaving the right to change my mind, if people will insist.

At the moment he changed his mind TRANS-Baikal and the Altai territory, the Astrakhan, Sakhalin, Ulyanovsk region, Altai Republic, the laws of these transition regions from one time zone to another have already been taken. A similar request of the Tomsk region arrived to the state Duma recently. And the discussion in the plenary hall of the state Duma of the bill on the transition of the Magadan region of the 9th time zone in 10 have clearly demonstrated the reasons for such a massive adjustment.

The representative of the Magadan Parliament Stepan Aznauryan told how much the 9th time zone “broke the usual rhythm of life of the region”: “decreased daylight in the waking hours of man, we automatically lost one hour in our airport, because the light has shifted, and you have to close it earlier, we have already in the third half becomes dark and we can’t make a second walk children in kindergarten”…

“The medical conclusion is this law? Maybe we will take, and after a year the doctors say that it is better to go back?” — asked Vladimir Fedotkin (CPRF). Mr. Aznauryan said: actually, the region “primordial” lived with an 8-hour difference in time with Moscow, and then had to live with 7 hours difference, that “became physically uncomfortable for any person”.

“Why did you not reply earlier, did miracles, and now all of a sudden woke up?” — put the question bluntly Nikolai Ryabov (CPRF), simultaneously calling “foolishness” hour reforms in 2011, then President Dmitry Medvedev (part of the reform was to reduce the number of time zones in the country).

“Maybe got a little excited the deputies of the regional Duma of the previous convocation, in the hope that it will bring us closer to the Central areas of the country and will enable a longer period of communication with the Executive bodies and other organizations of Moscow, at a smaller time difference. And few at this moment, probably thinking about what is human physiology and childhood, which must be preserved particularly,” confessed Mr. Aznauryan. And he did apologize.

That is, the local authorities thought about myself — wanted to be closer to the Moscow authorities, and now the majority of the population, 107 thousand inhabitants of Magadan from 147 thousand living in the area, require to take into account their physiology…

“What is the reaction of the chief Executive on the matter?” — asked Ivan Abramov (LDPR). “I can tell you that at the time when it was making the decision, the chief Executive, Baked Vladimir Petrovich, was on a business trip in Moscow, — told the deputies magazines and immediately said: — I’m not saying that he was out of touch”.

Deputies voted “for”, recognizing that “simply country at us huge”.

Actually just a decision-making system we have such…

And just in hindsight we often strong.
