[Country] Spotify in Ukraine

Hi Spotify team!

When watching Eurovision on TV in Stockholm this year I couldn't but think why Spotify is not yet registered in Ukraine? Eurovision 2017 in Ukraine would be a great marketing kick-start for the app in this country. Unlike Russia's personal data laws, Ukraine has no such restrictions of keeping the data only in Ukraine, so one large chunk of a problem is away. 

Although I currently live in Finland (relocating soon to Stockholm), I have test run the idea on my Ukrainian relatives/ friends/ partners etc. and it'd be successful there. Similarly to Russia and all the illegal music streaming through social media and online sources, there is a shift among user behavior - preference to have access to lots of good quality music all the time at any place.

It's already almost a half of 2k19.

 

Spotify still hasn't launched in Ukraine.

 

Well, really. What a shame, guys...

Spotify will be VERY VERY VERY relevant in Ukraine. Ukrainians have been waiting it for too long. Please consider that, Spotify Developers.

Besides, there ARE many ukrainian singers on Spotify. It is very absurd not to have Spotify in Ukraine.

And if they launch in Ukraine, can we finally get Ukrainian artist names in cyrillic script and not these translated names we have in the database today?

Dear spotify developers, you just ignore your potential customers, who was patiently waiting for many years...
I personally have struggled with VPN re-logins...

I do a switch in favor of Apple Music... because of you, your ignorance, absurd indifference...

I will never come back... because you did that.

 

Shame on you.
