Automation rules not working due to difference in time zones

I live in the Netherlands, timezone GMT+2. I registered the Aqara hub onto the Chinese mainland server.

The sensor information in the app displays the local time zone. Whenever I get a notification, it timestamp is displayed according to the Chinese mainland timezone (6 hours later)

The push notification never arrives, the automation does not work. Changing the timezone of my phone does not work either ( and you do not want that...)
