I agree that at this stage it is not a case for TZ database yet. 

But I hope that some Ukrainian and/or Russian contributors investigate and record what happens on the ground, in terms of actual clock settings, and report later once the situation is more stable.

 Now since 27 March the clocks are the same, on both sides of the front lines, but this will change again at the end of October.
