Splunk handles timezones with the following order:

(1) A time zone indicator in the raw event data e.g. -800, GMT-8 or PST

(2) The value of a TZ attribute set in props.conf
* Checks the host, source or sourcetype stanzas
* If a forwarder is used, the forwarder-provided time zone is used


TZ = Europe/Moscow 

TZ = Europe/Volgograd 

(3) If all else fails, Splunk applies the timezone of the indexer's host server.

So in the meantime you just need to use a timezone (close to Turkey) that has +03:00 all year around until a patch has been created.
