[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.

I have waited almost 10 years for your email to "Be the first to know when you launch". It`s ridiculous. Google/Apple music doesn`t give that satisfaction level from listening music. How many years do you need to understand that there are thousands of people waiting for your service to launch in Ukraine? But I`m still waiting, and I still want to "Be the first to know when you launch"!

In the meantime I signed up for Google Play Music. It kind of sucks since it doesn't have all the music you would probably wanna hear + its "stations" tend to repeat tracks too often, BUT it's quite cheap and I think it'll be a fine alternative for Ukraine till 2038, the year when Spotify discovers a country with 40-mln people on the map 🙂
