UNITED NATIONS GROUP OF EXPERTS ON GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES (UNGEGN)
Recognizing that in 2010 Ukraine officially adopted a system of romanization for geographical names, which revised a system used since 1996,
Recognizing also that, although not fully reversible, the system has nevertheless been well implemented in maps, gazetteers and databases of Ukraine, as well as on public signs and in spheres of life other than those concerning geographical names,
Recommends that the system, as set out in the document entitled “Romanization system in Ukraine”,1 be adopted as the international system for the romanization of Ukrainian geographical names.
