Search for "об исчислении времени" on
revealed 3 new bills changing time zone borders in Russia:

move Saratov oblast from UTC+3 to UTC+4.

moves Novosibirsk oblast from UTC+6 to UTC+7.

Given that the last two bills are proposed by regional parliaments,
they are likely to be approved.  When is less clear.  The bills
currently have effective dates in July, but that can be easily changed
before the second readings.  And they are just received while there
are only 4 weeks before the summer break in the State Duma.
