Well, the 3 largest cities in the affected area would be Nizhny
Novgorod (Gorky at the time), Kazan and Rostov-on-Don.  And which one
of them is larger changed with time.

Another caveat: I do not know whether they were on the same time in
1970.  They all were on Moscow+1 time and switched to Moscow time in
different years.

contains 1969 map placing Gorky in Moscow+1 zone and discusses whether
this is an error on the map.  (Note «Территории, на которых
фактическое исчисление времени отличается от декретного на минус 1 час
(официально не утверждено)» wording in the legend of the map.)
