Krasnoyarsk Time (KRAT) is the time zone seven hours ahead of UTC (UTC+7) and 4 hours ahead of Moscow Time (MSK+4). KRAT is the official time zone for central and east Siberian regions of Krasnoyarsk Krai, Kemerovo Oblast, Khakassia and Tuva.
Regions that formerly used this time zone include Novosibirsk Oblast (until 1993; this time zone was previously known as Novosibirsk Time NOVT/NOVST but had to be renamed for this reason) and Kemerovo Oblast (until spring 2010). These regions now use Omsk Time (UTC+7/MSK+3).
Between 27 March 2011 and 25 October 2014, Krasnoyarsk Time was fixed at UTC+8.
