Thanks for keeping us up-to-date. After December 9, it'll still need a look-see 
by the Federation Council and a signing by the president before it's a done 
deal. Not much time before the time change on December 20. I suppose people will 
just use "Europe/Moscow" if their tzdb copies aren't updated in time.

Your source says "в скандальном вопросе" ("v skandal'nom voprose"), a curious 
choice of words. The extreme lack of notice is scandalous from my point of view, 
and perhaps the source is making the same point.
