Ukrainian Premier Mykola Azarov has said he completely supports the idea of cancelling daylight saving time. "I always opposed shifts and time changes. I always thought that we should choose a time zone comfortable for our health," he told reporters in Kyiv on Tuesday.

Azarov stressed that scientists had proved that such time shifts have unfavorable influence on people's health, as well as giving no benefit to the economy.
