Timezone is incorrect for Russia, Novosibirsk on Upwork (+6 instead of +7)

It has been changes recently in tzdata.

Early Novosibirsk was in the same timezone as Omsk.

But now it is the same timezone as Krasnoyarsk.

 

The problem:

In settings I choose  "UTC +6 Omsk, Novosibirsk"

(just because I live in Novosibirsk) and in my profile I see

 

novosibirsk, Russia - 5:28pm local time - 1 hr behind

 

Actually it is 6:28 pm in my city.

$ date
Mon  4 Dec 18:28:59 +07 2017

(my system is Ubuntu 16.04)

 

google: russia omsk localtime

5:25 PM
Monday, December 4, 2017 (GMT+6)
 
google: russia novosibirsk localtime
6:29 PM
Monday, December 4, 2017 (GMT+7)
 
google: russia krasnoyarsk localtime
6:30 PM
Monday, December 4, 2017

 

 

So you (Upwork) need to fix timezones descriptions.

 

Additionally:  If I choose Krasnoyarsk +7 timezone, in my profile I see:

 

novosibirsk, Russia - 6:33pm local time - 1 hr behind

 

I'm so confused. It always says '1 hr behind' no matter weather it shows 5:28 pm or 6:33 pm.

 

I'm afraid I can miss appointments because of this.
