You mean in 2011 I suppose.

Since 2011, most Russian territories have a standard time ahead of mean
solar time, including time in some cites ahead it even by two hours.  For
example, Moscow at ~37°E is ~1:15 ahead of solar time, and St. Petersburg
at ~30°E is ~2:00 ahead.  How many folks in Russia understand that the
current situation rather looks like permanent daylight saving time is hard
to say.

Automatic translation
seems to be rough but correct.

That is, according to the law, Europe/Moscow is UTC+04 with no daylight saving.
