Timezone transitions are not dictated by WordPress; they're built into PHP.

So, you have to either update your version of PHP, or use http://pecl.php.net/package/timezonedb

Better to update to the lastest version of PHP but some hosting services does not offer such option for shared hosting...
I don't see any advantages of changing the time zone 2 times a year. I think Medveded did a right thing.

A simple workaround is to select a manual offset, UTC+4 for Moscow time.
