I am interested in Azure technologies and I want to try it .
THere is free trial on the website.
But iI am from Ukraine so I am not able to create an account to start trying Azure.
Could anybody advice something or help somehow to resolve this problem or is it just not possible?
Thanks in advance, Rodion.

Actually, if Azure is not commercially available in your country, the short answer is you can't buy an Azure Subscription.
How ever, you will definitely be able to download the SDK and emulator to develop and test the Azure application locally on your machine or laptop. To have a Azure subscription, you need a Credit Card and Address (of your friend or person you know) from one of 41 countries listed below. [https://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/support/faq/]
Say, if you have a friend in US, you ask your friend to put his/her credit card for Azure and create a subscription, you can be made the co-admin of the subscription and you will almost all the access to Azure Subscription.
In which countries is Windows Azure commercially available?
Windows Azure is commercially available in the following 41 countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, United States, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hong Kong S.A.R., Hungary, Israel, Luxemburg, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Romania, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Hope that Helps
