PC gamers in Russia might end up being the first to get their steam unlocks. PC users in Australia will still have to wait a few hours even if they managed to get a DVD from a store that broke the street date; it's not quite by timezone either but by region in some cases:

So a "midnight" for each region is defined and the game unlocks then. So this means that all of Australia would unlock at UTC +10 (or +9?). So will Russia unlock at UTC +12 or will they be at UTC+4 (MSK)?

It is one of their most succesful markets outside the US and their success is partly based on the idea of "providing a better service than the pirates" so I imagine Russia and not Australia may be getting the first chance to play the PC version.
