Maybe it's time to change the spelling of Ukrainian cities
I've found a comment in the tzdb:

> # Admittedly English-language spelling of Ukrainian names is

I think it's the right time to change it. For example, a lot of Airports
and international media did it.
For example,The Guardian:
Airports in London, Toronto, Istanbul, Bucharest, etc.:

You can find a lot of other examples by using hashtag #KyivNotKiev

Here is the link to the official information from the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs of Ukraine: https://mfa.gov.ua/en/page/open/id/5418

Please, consider.
