Moscow switched to permanent summer time, we should reflect that in our software. Not sure, if that is an IT thing.

also other regions. and there is no samara time now. samara is in moscow time now. ( and udmurtia that was in samara time is in utc+6 ). also some 1-2 other regions changed their time in addition to becoming in permanent summer time (also can say time zone increasing by 1).
I Set my Timezone as Asia/India-+5:30 still the date and time coming wrong in forum, as PST
I believe our timezone info either comes from the system or from pytz[1]. We should see if there's a pytz update with the changes. (Several areas in the Pacific also jumped the International Date Line this week, or so I heard.)

We're on pytz 2010k, the current version is 2011n: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pytz/2011n
Even bugzilla say the time as PST :O

Europe/Moscow is in UTC+4 since March 2011[1][2][3], so updating pytz version from 2010k to 2013b will probably solve the problem.
