says that the 1956 decision to change time belts' borders was not
implemented as planned in 1956 and the change happened in 1957.

There is also the problem that actual time zones were different from
the official time belts (and from many time belts' maps) as there were
numerous exceptions to application of time belt rules.  For example,
says that by 1962 there were many regions in the 3rd time belt that
were on Moscow time, referring to a 1962 map.  By 1989 number of such
exceptions grew considerably.
