Yakutsk Time (YAKST) is a time zone in Russia which is nine hours ahead of UTC, and six hours ahead of Moscow Time (MSK).[1]

The time zone covers Sakha Republic (western part), Amur Oblast and Zabaykalsky Krai.[1]

On 27 March 2011, Russia moved to year-round daylight saving time. Instead of switching between UTC+9 in winter and UTC+10 in summer, Yakutsk Time became fixed at UTC+10 until 2014, when it was reset back to UTC+9 year-round.
