I guess this explains the wrong timestamps of your e-mails! :)

Moscow is UTC+3.
`hwclock --localtime` should return 16:53:59 (UTC-3) while
`hwclock --utc` should return 19:53:59 (the current time).

So your hardware slock is wrong.  You can fix it with `hwclock --systohc`.

Do you run a dual boot with Windows?  If this is the case, you have to
configure Windows to use UTC time instead of localtime, otherwise it
will offset the hardware clock everytime you boot Windows.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody
appreciates how difficult it was.
