Symptoms

On OTM 6.2.8 OTM is getting the time difference for Moscow wrong.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
OTM is using a 3 hour difference from GMT to Moscow time when it should be using a 4 hour difference.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect OTM to carry out the correct time conversion.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1 - Log onto an OTM 6.2 system.

2 - Click on the Time Zones link in the 'Ask' section of OTM.

3 - Enter the following:

From:
Date: 25/02/2013
Time: 07:30 AM
Time Zone: Moscow Standard Time (Eurpoe/Moscow).

To :
Select Country: UNITED KINGDOM

4 - The result is:

04:30 Europe/London.

This is incorrect, London is currently using GMT, which is 4 hours behind Moscow, not 3. When the UK moves to BST (British Summer Time) the time difference will then be 3 hours.
