How to prove that Volgograd (Russia) is in the same timezone as Moscow?
Well now, I have tried some more search phrases and found at last a couple
of Russian pages with lists of all major Russian cities. It seems that there
are only let's say one or two originals and many copies of them at several
sites. I found the following URLs.
and more with the same list.

The table heading appearing in most lists reads (literally) translated:
Table of corrections of time of cities of the Russian Federation and of
states of neighbouring foreign countries relative to the city of Moscow.

All lists tell us that Volgograd is in the same timezone as Moscow (UTC+3).

But also Saratov and very likely the whole Saratovskaya oblast' is in the
Moscow timezone!
Ul'yanovsk, Samara and Astrakhan' are in UTC+4 according to these lists.
