Kiev is an important industrial, scientific and cultural center of Eastern Europe, it is home to many high-tech industries, higher education institutions, historical landmarks. The city has an extensive system including the Kiev Metro; the city's name is said to derive from the name of one of its four legendary founders. During its history, one of the oldest cities in Eastern Europe, passed through several stages of prominence and obscurity; the city existed as a commercial center as early as the 5th century. A Slavic settlement on the great trade route between Scandinavia and Constantinople, Kiev was a tributary of the Khazars, until its capture by the Varangians in the mid-9th century. Under Varangian rule, the city became a capital of the first East Slavic state. Destroyed during the Mongol invasions in 1240, the city lost most of its influence for the centuries to come.
It was a provincial capital of marginal importance in the outskirts of the territories controlled by its powerful neighbours, first Lithuania Poland and Russia. The city prospered again during the Russian Empire's Industrial Revolution in the late 19th century. In 1918, after the Ukrainian National Republic declared independence from Soviet Russia, Kiev became its capital. From 1921 onwards Kiev was a city of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, proclaimed by the Red Army, from 1934, Kiev was its capital; the city was completely ruined during World War II but recovered in the postwar years, remaining the Soviet Union's third-largest city. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and Ukrainian independence in 1991, Kiev remained Ukraine's capital and experienced a steady influx of ethnic Ukrainian migrants from other regions of the country. During the country's transformation to a market economy and electoral democracy, Kiev has continued to be Ukraine's largest and wealthiest city, its armament-dependent industrial output fell after the Soviet collapse, adversely affecting science and technology, but new sectors of the economy such as services and finance facilitated Kiev's growth in salaries and investment, as well as providing continuous funding for the development of housing and urban infrastructure.

Kyiv is used by the city, it is gaining in frequency in English-language sources; as a prominent city with a long history, its English name was subject to gradual evolution. The spelling Kiev was derived from the Old East Slavic form Kyjevŭ; the name is associated with that of the legendary eponymous founder of the city.

On the 1650 map by Guillaume de Beauplan, the name of the city is Kiiow, the region was named Kÿowia. In the book Travels, by Joseph Marshall, the city is called Kiovia; the form Kiev corresponds to Russian orthography and pronunciation, during a time when Kiev was in the Russian Empire. In English, Kiev was used in print as early as in 1804 in John Cary's "New map of Europe, from the latest authorities" in Cary's new universal atlas published in London.

In their final round robin game, the Ducks defeated Antigonish 5-3 to clinch first in the round robin and a bye directly into the tournament final; the Ducks again met Antigonish in the final and dispatched them 5-3 to win their first and only Don Johnson Cup.

At the 2011 Don Johnson Cup in Montague, Prince Edward Island, the Ducks would finish the round robin in third place with a record of two wins, a loss, a regulation tie; the Ducks defeated the Tri County River Cats of the New Brunswick Junior B Hockey League 2-1 to open the tournament. In their second game, the Ducks defeated the St. John's Jr. Celtics of the St. John's Junior Hockey League 6-4. On the final day of the round robin, the Ducks played two games, first dropping a 9-6 decision to the Island Junior Hockey League's Kensington Vipers and finished with a 4-3 overtime loss to the host Montague Maniacs; the Ducks met the Kensington Vipers again in the tournament semi-final and dropped a 4-3 double overtime decision to them to end any hope of a second Don Johnson Cup for that season.
