Yes, I suppose that might have pleased Putin (if he ever became aware of it if
only by the fact that his cellular telephone showed the correct local time) but ...
it wasn't done to please or displease him or his cronies (and the fifth columnists
'phones are right, too.)

It was, as has been explained, to reflect the technical "reality on the ground".
I'm sorry if that displeased you but it is what it is.  Being obstreperous
isn't going to change anything (except by further expanding the misery).
Making us out to be tools of injustice doesn't make it so.

Note that the *country codes* that came into question have been patched
reasonably expeditiously by Dr. Eggert.  TZ will reflect reality as best it can
under the circumstances with or without anyone's complete satisfaction.

I *am* certain that no one is happy about all the death, destruction and heart
wrenching circumstances from what has come to pass.  My thoughts and
prayers are with all the people who find themselves in such unfortunate conditions.
Were it only within my power to change them....
