Published on the BBC Ex-USSR newswire on September 11, 2011 was:
"Programme summary of Khabarovsk's Guberniya TV weekly news 0800 GMT"

"8. 1120 Soon Maritime Territory will become one hour closer to the
Moscow time zone than Khabarovsk, presenter says. Correspondent
details the changes in the time zones distribution in Russia over a
map. Deputies of the regional legislative assembly lobbied for a
six-hour difference with Moscow too, but fortunately, the region has
preserved its status quo. Correspondent talks about other regions
where a time shift has taken place. Video shows a deputy advocating a
time shift for the territory and people protesting against the idea."

Given that it says "Soon ... will become" on September 11th, that
rules out September 6th. Although it does not explicitly say September
13th, that interpretation makes sense.
