    Right. This tells us that a timestamp for Simferopol in
       2024-03-30 + [02..04[ h
    is not necessarily in error, and one in
       2024-03-30 + [00..02[ h
    might be ambiguous.

    Perhaps the comment could be made more precise by saying
    that the ceremony in Simferopol was for a switch 4 hours
    earlier (I have not seen any evidence for a ceremony
    in Sevastopol).
