I know there sit a loadbalancer between the request and my app and I can scale it, but is it possible to have instances living in different regions?

Currently a single app cannot span more than one region, however you could deploy your application in each region manually and set a third party global loudbalancer directing traffic to each of the provided ingress URLs.
