In Russia, the official time scale is UTC (SU) maintained by the National
Research Institute for Physical-Technical and Radio Engineering
Measurements (http://www.vniiftri.ru/index.php/en).  For all practical
purposes UTC (SU) is the same as UTC because the difference between the two
scales does not currently exceed 10 ns and expected to become smaller as
time measuring equipment improves.
