The US will officially change the spelling of Ukraine's capital to Kyiv, not Kiev. The United States Board on Geographic Names came to that conclusion today. Host Carol Hills speaks with Oksana Horbach, who was behind the push. Horbach is the director of communication at Stratcom Ukraine, a nongovernmental organization that supports the Ukranian government with communication.
