The Embassy of Ukraine to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland wrote about this on Twitter.
“Another leading British news source has changed the house style and says it is Kyiv, not Kiev from now on! Thank you The Economist! The campaign #KyivNotKiev goes on!” reads the report.
As Ukrinform reported, the Foreign Ministry initiated the online campaign #CorrectUA that was launched in October 2018.
The Foreign Ministry calls on foreign official institutions and commercial companies to abandon using spelling of Ukrainian cities derived from the Russian language and replacing them with the correct ones: Kyiv, Odesa, Kharkiv, Lviv, and Zaporizhzhia. The campaign also launched the flash mob #KyivNotKiev.
The Telegraph and The Financial Times have earlier stated they will use “Kyiv" instead of "Kiev".
