If the server that you are getting the feed from is in Russia then your ping of 68ms is good. I sometimes play on Russian games servers and anything around 60ms is alright (when everything is running OK).
I would suggest using a program like Ping Plotter or Visual Route to trace the route to the server, it might show up where the problem lies. You might be getting a lot of packet loss somewhere. Shouldn't think it's Russian side at 9-11 pm as it would be the middle of the night in most places, so off-peak.
Post the server IP or address where your getting the feed from
