Those sources are all over the map.

says that the main Simferopol clock changed at 22:00 March 29, and also 
that Crimea changed at 14:00 March 30.

says that the main clock in Sevastopol changed at 02:00 March 30, and 
that it also changed at 21:00 March 29.

Although it's unlikely that all these reports are correct, it does seem 
that people changed their clocks pretty much at a random time.  Since 
our entry is for Europe/Simferopol, I'm mildly inclined to go with the 
headlines on the first article and use the main Simferopol clock; this 
would have the advantage of leaving experimental tz database alone.
