If this means that macOS accepts "Europe/Kyiv" as a tz-style time zone, but does not support "Europe/Kiev", then this would be a very unusual sort of breaking change, since no tz database version beyond 2022a has been released yet.

If this is about UI strings, then it is not related to the tz database or the pending change.
