Question: In Ukraine first day of week is Monday but not Sunday

By defaults in the calendar object obtained with locale ua_UA getFirstDayOfWeek
() function return SUNDAY as a first week day... Java version is 1.3.1_01

Answer: Yes indeed, according to this list:
the first day in Ukraine is Monday. For those who does not know will say that in many countries Sunday or even Saturday is first day, for example in Egypt - Saturday and in Argentina and Brasil - Sunday...
It was a bug since according to ISO 8601 in all European countries a week starts with Monday...
I know that with Hungarian calendar was the same bug... In latest 1.4.1 and beyond the bug is fixed.
