Why assume they are located in GMT + 4

You don't need to be in a timezone for your computer to report being in that timezone.

If I was doing the spying I would purposefully set my timezone to be that of somebody I don't like so that if the target finds out my time zone they would assume it was them and not me.

Its just as likely to be one of the 5 Eyes as it is Russia.
