On March 30, Moscow Kremlin facade lighting will be turned off for Earth Hour

March 29, 2019

On March 30, the facade lighting of the President’s official residence, the Moscow Kremlin, will be turned off between 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm Moscow time for Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is an annual campaign organised by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to promote environmental awareness.

People around the world simultaneously turn off lights, electric appliances and facade lighting on iconic buildings, for one hour.

Earth Hour is the most widespread campaign in human history. In 2018, over 2 billion people from 188 countries took part in the event, including the residents of 170 Russian cities.

The Moscow Kremlin joined the campaign in 2013 by decision of Vladimir Putin.
