First of all, I have noticed that the proposed time change for Russia has not been applied to tzdata.  Could you tell me when will this be done?

Second,  this staying DST change  is  a bit confusing for me.    Should it be that Russia will return to Russian Standard Time and will increase time zone offset by one ?    But from the proposed change, the offset is not change.     Am I missing something here?.

Lastly, I have seen the term of UTC+2 and UTC+2+1.  For UTC+2+1, is it referring to time zone offset plus 2 with DST forward by one?

Your help is appreciated.
