Transliteration is obviously a strange thing, but it's especially complicated in Ukraine, where roughly one-sixth of the population is ethnic Russian, speaking Russian, and the other sixth are ethnic Ukrainian, but speak Russian too. It's become especially difficult recently, numerous of the protesters from the capital are Ukrainian-speaking, taking towards the streets last November when President Viktor Yanukovych - a Russian-speaker from Ukraine's east - rejected from E.U. membership toward an agreement with Russia's Eurasian Union.

Given previous Russian domination, both in the Soviet period and before, it's a given that language has changed into a big issue in the united states. One obvious demonstration of this is the Western habit of referring to the country as "the Ukraine" instead of "Ukraine." You can find myriad reasons that this is wrong and offensive, but possibly the most convincing is that the word Ukraine comes from the previous Slavic word "Ukraina," which roughly meant "borderland." Many Ukrainians believe that the "the" implies they're merely a part of Russia - "little Russia," as they are sometimes known by their neighbors - instead of a true country. The Western habit of using "the Ukraine" to refer to the continent - even by those sympathetic for the protesters, such as Senator John McCain- can be regarded as ignorant at the best.



At first glance, the Kiev/Kyiv debate seems similar, though it is much less heated. The state run language of the united states is Ukrainian. The location, in the predominantly Ukrainian-speaking west of the country, had its name standardized to Kyiv in Roman letters with the Ukrainian government way back in 1995, just 4 years as soon as they formally asked the globe to please stop saying 'the Ukraine.' The world listened, with an extent - the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) approved the spelling 'Kyiv' in 2006 after a request through the Ukrainian government (and subsequent endorsement by the State Department).

It is not so simple, however. For instance, over time there was many different different spellings from the English names for that city; Wikipedia lists at least nine. In 1995, Andrew Gregorovich of the FORUM Ukrainian Review argued that as "Kiev" was based on an old Ukrainian-language term for town, understanding that Kyiv and also other potential Roman transliterations - like Kyjiv and Kyyiv - were confusing for English speakers, Kiev was just fine. The BGN still allows Kiev to use, arguing that 'Kyiv' is simply a "an exception to the BGN-approved romanization system that's placed on Ukrainian geographic names in Ukrainian Cyrillic script."
