I am not sure why the Duolingo creators are using this spelling; I think they're trying to promote a direct transliteration of the Ukrainian Cyrillic spellings in place names (as noted with 'Kyiv' above). I am a native speaker of English, and all my life I have seen the spellings as "Odessa" and "Kiev."
