Novosibirsk Oblast used this time zone until 1993, when it was known as Novosibirsk Time (NOVT/NOVST). The Russian government renamed the time zone shortly after Novosibirsk opted for another time zone instead.

Between 27 March 2011 and 25 October 2014, Krasnoyarsk Time was fixed at UTC+08:00.[1]

In 2016, the Altai Republic[2], Altai Krai, Novosibirsk Oblast[3], and Tomsk Oblast[4], switched to Krasnoyarsk Time from Omsk Time.
