Vladimir Putin and I are not on the same page when it comes to daylight savings time

In 2011 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev decided that Russia would no longer change its clocks for daylight savings time, and put the country on a permanent "summer" setting (where it's light an hour later in the evening).  Now Vladimir Putin has decided to go the opposite route, and will switch the country to a state of permanent "winter" (so the sun comes up an hour earlier in the morning).

Either way I like Russia's notion that changing the clocks twice a year is dumb, but I think that extra hour of daylight is way more valuable in the evening.

On the other hand, I don't live in Russia.
