First I suggest to change "[This region consists of]" as e.g. in
! # From Oscar van Vlijmen (2001-08-25): [This region consists of]
to "[This zone consists of]" since I assume "region" here refers to
the tzdb zone.

Second I suggest to
A) either use the names of the country subdivisions as in the
Wikipedia article names......

etc., etc.


With respect, but you can do whatever you want, TZ can do whatever they 
want, I don't care, but my advice would be: just stick as close as you can 
get (with a reasonable transliteration) to the official region names, as 
stated in the law regarding time zones, to be foud at:
(in Russian).
