A quote from the asia file:

# The zone closer to UTC is the former Western zone (probably still called
# same), encompassing four provinces in the west: Aqtobe, Atyrau,
# Mangghystau, and West Kazakhstan.  The other zone encompasses
# everything else....  I guess that would make Kazakhstan time zones
# de jure UTC+5 and UTC+6 respectively.

Atyrau lies betwen the Aqtobe and Mangghystau (Aqtau) regions. Do we know if
it followed Asia/Aqtobe or Asia/Aqtau in the past?
