  | I think this is contrary to Mr Olsons assertion that abolishing now means
  | standard.

I think you misread what ado intended to say.   I believe his intent was that
the new timezone for Russia (an offset from UTC which used to be its Summertime)
can now be considered as standard time for Russia (or standard times, as there
are still multiple zones right?) rather than being considered summer time.

He wasn't intending to say that the time would revert to what had been
standard time before.
