Wait a second! Where did Israel go? (unsigned comment by

Israel uses the names "Israel Standard Time" and "Israel Daylight Time". -- Naive cynic 11:47, 25 August 2005 (UTC)
The Western European Time article has the UK down, despite the names Greenwich Mean Time and British Summer Time being used in that country, so all countries that use EET should probably be included here, even if they use idiosyncratic terms. Terminal emulator 11:48, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Moscow never used EET in 90 - 91! As per 20-th I do not know. (talk) 15:53, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

"Israel, since 1948"... isn't that kind of redundant? They didn't exist before 1948 so obviously it's since 1948 unless it says otherwise... (talk) 21:29, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

The geographic area did exist before, and that very slight redundancy should be allowed. This is not a legal text. The readers must not have to know he history of Israel. --BIL (talk) 19:48, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Kaliningrad to UTC+3 permanantly[edit]

Up to my understanding, Kaliningrad of Russia is no longer following UTC+2 since today, but has shifted to UTC+3, following the decision of Russia to abandon winter time. Please have a look and probably the redirect Kaliningrad Time has to be split – PeterCX&Talk 17:36, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

This is accurate, so far as I can tell.
I have changed everything in this article except the section Areas that do not use Eastern European Time (UTC+2) and the map of Europe. Off to create a Kaliningrad time stub now. Pfainuk talk 18:30, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
OK Kaliningrad Time is now an article. Pfainuk talk 18:36, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Section of this article dated[edit]

Now that Russia (which can never make up its mind on these things) has switched from year-round daylight saving time to year-round standard time, Moscow Time is UTC+3 rather than UTC+4 so a lengthy section of this article is out of date. Can someone with more knowledge of these things than me (the stability of time on an island makes these things very confusing to me) revise or even delete that section?

"The following countries, parts of countries, and territories use Eastern European Time during the winter only:" My question, what then do they use outside of winter ? And what is "winter", dec 21st to march 21st ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:16, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
