It is also worth noting that in March Istanbul Ataturk Airport began to use the correct English-language spelling of the Ukrainian cities of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv and Odesa, according to Ukrainian transliteration. The international airports of the capital of Helsinki and Tallinn have also recently supported the online campaign of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine #CorrectUA and introduced the correct spelling of the name of the Ukrainian capital, changing Kiev to Kyiv.


In October 2018, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine, together with the Center for Strategic Communications StratCom Ukraine, launched the #CorrectUA online campaign, the aim of which is to turn to foreign media in order to correct the spelling of the name of Ukraine’s capital- #KyivNotKiev.
