Vladivostok Time (Russian: Владивостокское время, Vladivostokskoye vremya) or VLAT, is a time zone in Russia, named after the city of Vladivostok. It is ten hours ahead of UTC (UTC+10) and seven hours ahead of Moscow Time (MSK+7).
On 27 March 2011, Russia moved to year-round daylight saving time. Instead of switching between UTC+10 in winter and UTC+11 in summer, Vladivostok Time became fixed at UTC+11 until 2014, when it was reset back to UTC+10 year-round.
