As for Lithuania, the time depends on province (although previously it was different). Four northern provinces uses UTC +2, while Voluinė uses UTC +3, similarly to Galicia. The usage of UTC +3 here is entirly for political reasons - traditionally this time had been used by many snorsit states, and thus also Belarus and Ukraine. In Ukraine at least this did not change and thefefore Galicia and Voluinė adopted UTC +3 time when possible despite of territories actually being partly in UTC +1 and partly in UTC +2 zone. But there is nothing strange here as in real world there are also such examples - Morrocco uses UTC +1 for exampe depite being on UTC / UTC -1 atcutally. Republic of Petrograd and Novgorod might have moved to UTC +2 after the fall of Snor however, but I don't know this. Abdul-aziz 07:17, 19 November 2006 (PST)

I don't really think Galicia and Volhynia would apply +3 because of snorism. Anyone knows snorism is bad, and they weren't snorist anyway. Also Ukraine and Belarus adopted their geographical time zones after the fall of USSR *here* (+2), why wouldn't they do that *there*?
