Should be able to copy snapshots between regions in Azure Portal
You have a powershell script to do this documented here:
However, it would be much more convenient if you exposed this functionality via the Azure Portal.
The comment from @Curtis Porter was promising, actually you can move snapshots via the portal if you go to Resource Groups -> Move, then choose the subscription and Resource Group in a different region you want to move it to.
HOWEVER, AFTER more than half an hour MOVING THE SNAPSHOT AND THE MANAGED DISK CREATED FROM THE SNAPSHOT to the new RG, the resources REMAIN IN THE SOURCE REGION, SO THE NEW VM IS CREATED IN THE SOURCE REGION.
So no way.
But using Storage Explorer would be sweet too!
