Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. If they did some research, they made a blunder in this paragraph:

"The violated instrument is known as the "Golden Oboe" and was used from 1928 to 1967 to perform some of the most famous Russian classical pieces in the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. It was also used to record some of Russia's most famous motion picture film scores."

The Moscow Symphony Orchestra, was, by all accounts I've been able to find, created in the very late 1980's. And it does not appear (like the Russian State Symphony or the St Peterburg Philharmonic) to be an old orchestra which simply changed it's name. Hard to have an oboe playing in the Moscow Symphony if the orchestra did not exist. Though I believe there was the Moscow Philharmonic, but again, that's not exactly the Moscow Symphony.
