> Thanks for the fix for Russia.  Here is a patch to the latest tz data.

BTW, what are the strange Moscow timezone names in latest tz data?

1981    1984    -       Apr      1       0:00   1:00    S
1981    1983    -       Oct      1       0:00   0       -

Moscow standard/daylight always stays as MSK/MSD, but I find
some cryptic MOS%sT things instead in new version :-(
Such names never used here.
Please back out this change if it isn't based on some
strong international standard.
Many software here already knows about MSK/MSD but never hear about MOSST.
