The changes should be in tzdata as of 2014f.

Not every part of Russia is changing.  For example, Moscow is changing 
but Samara is not:

$ zdump -Vc2014,2015 Europe/Moscow
Europe/Moscow  Sat Oct 25 21:59:59 2014 UT = Sun Oct 26 01:59:59 2014 
MSK isdst=0 gmtoff=14400
Europe/Moscow  Sat Oct 25 22:00:00 2014 UT = Sun Oct 26 01:00:00 2014 
MSK isdst=0 gmtoff=10800
$ zdump -Vc2014,2015 Europe/Samara

If these results don't match what you're observing, I suspect the files 
weren't installed correctly.
