The New York Post corrected the news in which Kyiv was called “Russia”

The news is about a Ukrainian woman who, after landing at Boryspil airport, opened an emergency exit and boarded the plane.

On September 2, the American edition of the New York Post published news about an incident with a Ukrainian woman at Boryspil airport, in which she called Kyiv “Russia.” On September 3, the publication corrected the error.

The news is about a Ukrainian woman who, after landing at Boryspil airport, opened an emergency exit and boarded the plane. ” This overheated woman could not wait to get off the flight in Russia – so she decided to cool off and climbed on the wing ,” the newspaper wrote, adding that the plane flew from Turkey to Kiev.

The New York Post in the news refers to the British newspaper The Sun, which indicates that the incident took place in the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv. However, the British edition uses the wrong transliteration – Kiev, not Kyiv.

It will be recalled that in October 2018, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine  launched an online campaign  #CorrectUA, in which it will appeal to foreign media to correct the spelling of the city of Kyiv (#KyivNotKiev). According to the agency, leading foreign media, such as The New York Times, BBC, Reuters and others, misuse the name of the Ukrainian capital. Posts with cases of incorrect use of the name in the ministry promised to post on the pages of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on Facebook and Twitter.

On February 14, 2019, it became known that The Guardian and WizzAir  will use the  Ukrainian version of the transliteration of the name of the capital of Ukraine. On August 14, 2019, the American news agency Associated Press  announced that it would name the Ukrainian capital Kyiv in its materials – instead of Kiev.

On October 14, the British BBC  decided to change the spelling of Kyiv  in English from Kiev to Kyiv.

The American publication The Washington Post on October 16  supported the #KyivNotKiev initiative.

On October 21, it became known that the British publication The Telegraph  supported the  #KyivNotKiev initiative . The name of the capital of Ukraine in English will be written by Kyiv instead of Kiev.

On October 29, 2019, the British newspaper Financial Times  decided to change the spelling of Kyiv  in English from Kiev to Kyiv.

On June 15, 2020, the international news agency Reuters began using the Ukrainian version of the transliteration of the name of the capital of Ukraine – Kyiv instead of Kiev.

    Bad journalism, or deliberate provocation? With a newspaper owned by the odious Rupert Murdoch, probably the latter. The truth is hard to find on any of his media sites.

    • Interesting guy Murdoch. As old as Methuselah and rich as Creusus. Had a chicom wife who he divorced because she was banging – Tony Blair! The chicom, Wendy Deng, was later reported as being with putler for a while.
      Murdoch then married Jerry Hall! Now that is a match made in hell! Hard to work out who got the worse deal!

  • FYI, there is a lively FB news and comment site in English hosted by two Ukrainian women. They also have a YouTube site with the same name: Kyiv not Kiev.

      • I note he called you a Zionist! Such textbook kremkrappery! You want to lick putler’s tiny jackboots? You gotta go with the programme! The vocabulary never changes ; hasbara, khazar, Nuland, Soros, the Rothschilds, pravy sektor, Azov, Poro= ‘Waltzman’, Zionists, ‘Kiev nazis’ : spelt with the Russian transliteration of course etc etc.
        edit; I got called a new one in the DT recently: ‘Brigade 77’. I had not heard of it but it turns out to be the British army’s psych warfare outfit. All I can say is : give them more money and lots of it!
