What is the significance of this "article"?

Its significance is similar in magnitude to that of articles about other timezones.

MSKS or MSD?[edit]

Which is the correct time zone abbrevation for Moscow Summer time? If both are acceptable, then both should be included.

Daylight saving[edit]

This article should contain information on what date MSK changes to MSD and vice versa. Or, perhaps links to Daylight saving time around the world. And I suppose these dates has changed in 2006 or 2007, but I don't know where to find precise info.


How is this abbreviation formed? The Russian translation given doesn't appear to lead to it ("MV"?). (talk) 16:14, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

- My guess is it comes from the Latin transliteration of the Russian name for Moscow, which is Moskva. Trubetskoy 18:46, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Airplane scheduling[edit]

Moscow time is not used for scheduling airplane flights in Russia. Local time used instead. -- (talk) 18:15, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Repealing 2011 law?[edit]

The text says that a 2011 law ended the distinction between Winter and Summer Time and put the Time Zone on permanent Summer Time (UTC+4). Then it says that in 2014, this law was repealed, putting the Time Zone on permanent UTC+3. If the 2011 law had simply been repealed, then Summer Time would still apply part of the year, which doesn't seem to have happened. So either the 2014 change included a repeal of the 2011 change together with a new change, or it simply made a new change without any repeal as such. ―Toby Bartels (talk) 23:27, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
