Apologies beforehand if this was already discussed elsewhere but I didn't find it.
Currently the entry for Odesa in Ukraine is using the traditional spelling (which I believe to be in Russian) for its name. Wikipedia and several international media organizations have been moving away from the historical spelling to the Ukrainian one.
I mention Odesa specifically because it was the one brought to us by one of our users, but the issue is likely happening with others too. I see that Kyiv has already been updated (from Kiev), but there's probably others still using the historical spelling. Not sure if there's a way to do a batch update so that this is not done piecemeal. I'm not Ukrainian, so I'm not much of help there I'm afraid.
Anyhow, if possible, can the preferred name for Odesa be updated?
