To quote from the Google translation of the header for the decree:

	Decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan of December 7, 2018 No. 817.

If the decree was truly issued on 2018-12-07, if an email had been sent to the tz list closer to 2018-12-07 than to 2018-12-21, it would have been easier for Paul to get a tzdb release out before the change occurred.
