Clash[edit]

The infobox contains these two contradictory facts:

  • Founded: 1654
  • City rights: 1552 - 1654

How can the city have city rights earlier then being founded?? --Mity (talk) 19:26, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Quite simple explanation - Kharkiv was founded before 1654. Unfortunately, the article about Kharkiv is imprecise. I would suggest you to switch to Russian language and translate what you find there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.7.211.246 (talk) 10:43, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Not a dead link, but slow loading. Leaving it as archived capture to avoid timing out. Thanks, Cyberbot II. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 03:37, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Is this Charkow?[edit]

Howdy. I was trying to look up info on Charkow (the city's name in the 1910s. Is this the same city as Kharkiv, or a different one. I'm not finding a page for Charkow. Thanks. Tesseract501 (talk) 23:23, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, Charkow is the traditional German name for Kharkov. (Though the influence of Ukrainian nationalism has produced :De:Charkiv lol.)-- Toddy1 (talk) 21:17, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
Could some more info on name/spelling changes and alternatives be added to the article? There's no mention of Charkow and only one of Kharkov (without any further explanation). I assume the last one is the Russian version? FinnishOverlord (talk) 09:09, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Agree, we most not ignore that Kharkov is more prevalent than Kharkiv. This certainly merits more than one unexplained mention of the more common name. https://www.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=Kharkov,Kharkiv Newuser1138 (talk) 11:53, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Dinara Klinton[edit]

An IP editor keeps deleting Dinara Klinton (née Nadzhafova) from the list of notable people, on the grounds that it is an unsourced red link.[1][2] There is no problem providing evidence that she is from Kharkov. Sources say that she was born there,[3] and was at school there.[4] I do not know whether there ought to be an article on her - maybe there will be one day. Currently there is a redirect to an article on a competition she was in.-- Toddy1 (talk) 21:26, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
