We have checked with the local government on the phone now, one of the 
Prime Minister's advisors confirms that they are currently on standard 
time, he confirmed the local time (which was like UTC+4) and that they 
will stay on that through the year. (So the hotel we called the other

The Government also lists it here:

So I guess a new Asia/Stepanakert zone is needed, based on Asia/Baku.
