Please implement following changes for Ukraine.
I have made my personal patch for europe file from tzdata2011j.tar.gz.
Explanations are in comments below.
Please, note that I did not make changes to others Ukrainian cities
besides Kiev because time is the same for all cities and it is Kiev time.

# of 19 January 2001 on summer-time arrangements.
+#From Serge Kolotylo
+#New Rules for Ukraine
+#The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (Ukraine's parliament) accepted
+#resolution to cancel seasonal clock change and
+#to establish Ukraine time as second time zone plus one hour
+#according to this resolution:
+#Ukraine will not switch to winter time anymore and "standard"
+#time will be changed from UTC+2 to UTC+3 (WorldTimeZone.com)
+#or in Ukrainian http://portal.rada.gov.ua/rada/control/uk/publish/article/news_left?art_id=284299&cat_id=37486
+#Start date of resolution 20.09.2011
+#in direct translation from original (in Ukrainian)
+#text of resolution: "About changing the order of time calculation on Ukraine territory"
+# Number 8330 from 04.04.2011
+#So, it means that from 27th of March in Ukraine will be time
+#of 2nd timezone plus 1 hour, UTC+3
+#it will be no more any "winter" (-1 hour) or "summer" (+1 hour) changes
+#also note, that at the moment of 21.09.2011 Ukraine is in UTC+3
+#also note that in Ukraine there is only 1 timezone
+#For all Ukraine there is only Kiev time
+#So, what is declared by Igor Karpov - splitting time by Ukrainian cities
+#it is not correct because for all of them time rules are the same
+#and the only time is valid - Kiev time
