The result left CSKA in third position on seven points from three games, two behind leaders Spartak Moscow who maintained their perfect start with a 4-1 away rout of Dynamo Moscow on Saturday.
Honda fired CSKA ahead in the 19th minute in Moscow with a superb free kick, curling in a vicious shot from 25 metres which left Lokomotiv keeper Guilherme clutching air. The Brazilian sustained a foot injury when he crashed into his near post.
Tarasov headed home an Alexandr Samedov corner after the latter had a penalty brilliantly saved by CSKA keeper Igor Akinefeev, but Lokomotiv's joy was short-lived as Kresic committed a calamitous error.
The 29-year old keeper misjudged an inswinging corner as Musa swept the ball home from a goalmouth scramble after Seydou Doumbia had sneaked in at the far post and hit the woodwork with a close-range header.
