No, the time zone of Qostanay did not change and Asia/Almaty can be used 
for Qostanay. In the decree the border of division of time zones 
according to the regions of the Republic of Kazakhstan is specified 
(Paragraph 3). You can trace this border on the map 

   UTC+5   |  UTC+6
           | SOUTH KAZ
