I think the confusion comes from the fact that the rules section does
not include a change because by longstanding policy "permanent summer
time" and "standard time" are both regarded as standard time by the
tzdata project, so the change is reflected as an offset change from 4:00
to 3:00 under Europe/Moscow (and other Russian zones), and not a rule
change under Russia.
