Thanks for (finally) making this change!

I would suggest some minor changes to the commentary though.  Referring 
to "the current conflict" will not age well.  Words like "traditional" 
and "popular" have unhelpful connotations which the word "common" neatly 

I also wonder if it wouldn't be less disruptive to our users to take 
this opportunity to also rename Europe/Uzhgorod and Europe/Zaporozhye to 
Europe/Uzhhorod and Europe/Zaporizhzhia at the same time...
