Hi PSQL team,

Please consider that timezone 'Europe/Kiev' is incorrect.
There is no such city in existing. Right spelling should be 'Europe/Kyiv'.

Sincerely yours,

We use the zone names published by the IANA time zone group,

https://www.iana.org/time-zones

If you like you can complain to them --- but a brief survey
of their mailing list archives will show you that they've heard
this before, and are not yet prepared to change the spelling.
