There is no problem with Kyiv being the local language name for a city,
but for the rest of the world the 'standard' is Kiev, and it is that
standard which all of the names within the 'English' version of the TZ
database follows. There is no ulterior agenda here, simply following
established practice in an attempt to avoid 'political' bias of any kind.
