Russian cities

If the map in is correct, it seems to me
that the GMT+6 region (or Moscow+3 if you like) is bigger to the south than
most timezone maps of Russia I have come across until now. I assume this is
what Oscar is referring to as "Respublika Altaj" and "Altajskij kraj".

I attach a GIF file of this area as seen in World Time Explorer. Is it correct to
conclude that the cities Rubtsovsk, Barnaul and Bijsk are all on GMT+6, not
on GMT+7?

I converted the image map code on this web page to a list (below) and
transliterated the Russian names for those who want to do further research.

Please note that there are some conflicts between this timezone map and
earlier information about the regions we investigated between 2001-06-10 and
2001-06-19 (cf. tz email archive). Seems that there are a bit too many
regions in the Moscow timezone, according to Anton Star/

The following list is sorted by Moscow-offset and then by the names of the
regions without the respublika, oblast' etc, in the order of the Russian
alphabet. Transliteration scheme: Chemical Abstracts, the most readable
transliteration - with the exception: ' is a soft sign, which should have
been transliterated to the less email compatible '.
