Kyiv not Kiev now official for USA
« on: June 13, 2019, 10:13:26 AM »
The United States Board on Geographic Names, or BGN, has changed its English spelling of Ukraine’s capital from Kiev to Kyiv, the Embassy of Ukraine in the U.S. announced in a statement on June 13.

The U.S. BGN is a federal body under the U.S. Secretary of the Interior that is tasked with deciding on the uniform standard of place names to be used by the U.S. Federal Government and its agencies.

The embassy says that the move is of great importance, as many international organizations, such as the International Air Transport Association, use the U.S. database of geographic names.

Apart from Kyiv, the ministry also requests that international media, organizations and companies use the Ukrainian names of other cities, like Kharkiv, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Lviv, and Ukraine, instead of “the Ukraine.”

Ok but I'm still going to pronounce it the same.    :D
Life ain't nothing but a poker game
And no two hands are quite the same
But I never saw a winner that didn't bet

I noticed that too.   Even funnier, it translates to Kyiv in Italian.
