Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope this email finds you well.
I'm writing to you with a request to accept proposed changes of correcting
the spelling of capital of Ukraine Kyiv in the Time Zone Database.

I've found previously closed PR with the same intention. It was about
renaming Kyiv and other two cities of Ukraine: Uzhhorod and Zaporizhia. It
was closed 4y ago with no changes applied.

I am deeply sorry for comments left by their authors in that PR. Those
messages were sounding offensive and I understand your decision of closing
that PR with no decision made.

I agree, 4y ago the usage of Kiev was much wider than nowadays, and believe
you will find materials I attached to my PR meaningful.

The link to PR I've brought to your attention:
I have also attached a patch of the commit to the email.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Viktor Perov
