Kiev is the capital city of Ukraine, bisected by the Dnieper River and known for its religious architecture, secular monuments and history museums. The 11th-century Kiev Pechersk Lavra is a monastery and pilgrimage site encompassing several gold-domed churches. It's known for its catacombs lined with the burial chambers of Orthodox monks, and a collection of gold objects from ancient Scythian times.

and what? They should always write Moskva not Moscow? :D
2018-05-28 10:07
Nope, just in this case picking transliteration from Russian language over Ukrainian one for the Ukrainian capital doesn't make sense.

You can call the city as you wish, but official transliteration is Kyiv. And don't write bullsh*t like Russian and Ukrainan is the same language^_^
2018-05-28 12:16
damn smart you are. Who said rus and ukr are the same languages? Kiev isn't the translation from rus because nobody translates the word, it already exists in english as town (kiev)

You have just knocked together 2 things that are not related to each other, maybe if you weren't ignorant you'd comprehend this simple logic of what formal city's name is used among the international community.
