Lightroom: Some regions don't list Photoshop Lightroom 6 (perpetual license) in the product catalog

The following regions either omit Photoshop Lightroom 6 from the Adobe Product Catalog, or else they redirect the entire product-catalog page to a marketing blurb for the Creative Cloud. Is this deliberate or accidental?  (I.e. what should users who ask on the forums be told?)
 
Česká republika (Czech Republic)
CIS - English (Commonwealth of Independent States)
Italia (Italy)
România (Romania)
Slovensko (Slovakia)
Suomi (Finland)
СНГ – русский (Commonwealth of Independent States - Russian)
中国 (China) (*)
 
Regarding China, these do appear to work: China Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Taiwan.

I changed the region by clicking the drop-down menu in the lower-left corner of the product-catalog page: http://www.adobe.com/products/catalog.html?filters=cd_252Fphotography&page=2#

Here's the most recent instance of a forum post from someone in Italy who can't buy LR 6: https://forums.adobe.com/message/9807679#9807679

Thanks John, 

I'm looking into the Italian part. For the other languages -- this article https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/system-requirements.html -- shows the languages that Lightroom supports, many of those you mention are not listed. 

Regards
Pete

It's not about languages! It's about being able to buy the perpetual Lr6 license.

Pete, the issue isn't the language but rather the geographic location of the buyers, who are allowed to purchase Lightroom CC 2015 but can't buy Lightroom 6 (perpetual license)  For example, in the region Česká republika (Czech Republic), users can buy LR CC but LR 6 doesn't appear in the product catalog:
