Russian President Vladimir Putin Says Russia Will Not Revert To Winter Time For Sochi 2014

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that "Russia will not revert to winter time ahead of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi," according to Gennedy Fyodorov of REUTERS. Fans "have complained of the difficulty of following sporting events," such as football's Champions League, taking place in Western Europe after Russia moved to a four-hour time difference with Greenwich Mean Time in '11. IOC chiefs had also hoped that Russia would turn the clock back an hour for next year's Sochi Games, "because that time would better suit the rest of Europe and the Americas" (REUTERS, 4/25).
