When Jira will change Kiev (wrong) into Kyiv (correct)?

Victor May 15, 2023

I was a bit confused to see Kiev TimeZone in my profile.

It is wrong. "Kyiv" should be used instead.

Currently, the whole world uses:

 

According to the latest changes made into "iana" library, we have:

# Zone NAME STDOFF RULES FORMAT [UNTIL]
Zone Europe/Kyiv 2:02:04 - LMT 1880
2:02:04 - KMT 1924 May 2 # Kyiv Mean Time

 

Thank you for this product.

 

P.S. In addition, let me explain why we're waiting for this change?

See:

 

After russia started a terrorist war, this naming issue becomes even more fundamental for Ukraine.

Naming concern is legit.  But let's keep politics out of here please.

Victor May 16, 2023

It wasn't about politics.
It is about the war and the official position of the Ukrainian government regarding the convention on the naming of the city.
But still, I got your point.

Thanks!

I would take the position of the people over any government.  But your point stands - the people likely want this name corrected too.  Thanks!

BTW, are you responsible for creating the associated Jira task in the context of this question?
