It replaces old instructions, which can result in changes. Details
supporting this have been provided at

Still, it can be wrong, but then it would be nice to see evidence for
an error in the above reasoning.

According to
DST changes have been carried out 02:00 local time.

So maybe the 00:00 is local time (before the change). But depending on
the direction of the move that could mean a repetition of the time
between 23:00 and 24:00 - has anyone seen that happening in Russia in
the last 20 years? Maybe someone who can Google in Russian can search
for changeover time, maybe trying to find 00:00 or 02:00?
