Tivat International Airport in Montenegro joined the Ukrainian campaign concerning correct spelling of the Ukrainian cities in Latin, as Ukraine’s Embassy to Montenegro reported on Facebook.

“Tivat International Airport in Montenegro is now one of the airports in the world which joined the Ukrainian campaign on the correct use of the geographic names of Ukraine in Latin,” the Embassy informed.

It was stressed that this way, “tens of thousands of tourists from five Ukrainian cities – Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Lviv, and Zaporizhia – will see the right spelling of their cities and since the beginning of their summer vacation they will know that Montenegro is a friendly and hospitable country.”

In October 2018, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine launched the online campaign dubbed #CorrectUA, which urges the foreign media and airports to change the spelling of the capital of Ukraine from Kiev to Kyiv (#KyivNotKiev).

The list of international airports that changed the spelling includes Budapest, Tallinn, London, Gdansk, Batumi, Tbilisi, Bucharest, Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Toronto, and Warsaw.

The Ukrainian authorities also suggest that international media use purely Ukrainian spelling for such cities as Kharkiv, Odesa, Mykolaiv, and others, as well as "Ukraine instead of the widespread mistake, "the Ukraine."
