Time in Transnistria (officially the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic), a breakaway state internationally recognised as being part of Moldova, is given by Eastern European Time (EET; UTC+02:00). [1] Daylight saving time, which moves one hour ahead to UTC+03:00 is observed from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October. [2] [3]

As Transnistria is not an internationally recognised sovereign state, it is not granted a zone.tab entry on the IANA time zone database.

History

The government announced on 10 October 2011 that they would not be switching back from DST, after President Igor Smirnov signed a decree abolishing winter time. [2] [4] [5] However, Smirnov changed his mind according to local media reports, and Transnistria continued observing both winter and summer time. [6]
