Thanks, that refers to an older article I hadn't seen, with the 
following gem about Medvedev's 2011 change to Russia's timekeeping:

"To reflect Medvedev time, Muscovites had to set their smartphones to 
Baku or Yerevan time zones — a politically uncomfortable gesture for some."

The source for that quote:

Gessen M. Will Russia Turn Back the Clock? New York Times 2012-10-01.
