This resonates with me, but I think the instant situation is a bit different.

One imagines that those people in Crimea who agree with the Russian
referendum will switch their time to Russian time, and those who do
not will not.

This suggest we should have not Europe/Simferopol but Ukraine/Simferopol and

This also seems like a case where it will be hard to predict exactly
what will happen, and so it may be inadvisable for the tz database to
take a position too early.
