Winter is not over until approximately March 21. I notice that many Russians rush things to get winter over and on March 1 they say winter is over. So, I'm not surprised by this statement, except that Russians tend to be very accurate in everything else.

In Russia winter is strictly from December to February, then spring begins. And it doesn't matter if the snow is still there in May. :)

In Russia all doors open to the outside, people only eat with forks, city streets are raging waterways after rainfall and so on and so on, so who can be surprised about the little mistake about the end of winter?

In Canada, winter ends in May

Strange. I think 20 March is the last day of winter.

Но в России, последний месяц зимы это май.

Также где я живу, в американском штате Вермонт, который находится в севере страны - прямо на юге границы канадской провинции, Квебек. Здесь, зима обычно начинается в ноябре и заканчивается в конце апреля - иногда в начале мая, как в Сибири, да? Ещё хуже, зимой здесь страшно холодно и тёмно; редко появляется солнце.

В Сибири холодно, но если ветра нет, то не страшно, а солнца много. Лето жаркое.

А первый -- сентябрь ;)

I heard that february is called "весна света" in Russia.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kundoo

It's not, really. However there is a book by Mikhail Prishvin called "Календарь природы" in which he uses this phrase. Not in regard to February specifically but in general as the earliest stage of spring.

February is in summer


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alexroseajr

"In winter" is disallowed but it's normal to say.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Renato260290

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mofesori

When written like this, I'd rather translate it as "February - the last month of winter " bc of the -.
