I've been wondering that myself.  Anyone following recent events on the BBC news and websites will be in no doubt about the spelling pronunciation. I think all the UK press is now using "Kyiv" as well.

Even the local supermarkets are changing: the chicken and garlic dish has been renamed "Chicken Kyiv" (well, Sainsbury's and the Coop, I think).
