in july and august I was in kiev, you do not need the both as both are specified. So why was it not accepted

I think it's just a poor translation. It's very strange in English to say "... Both in July and August"

With the modern spelling of Kyiv too, very nice.

I read this as "i visited kiev both in july and in August" surely its the same as the accepted answer

Not a native speaker here, but I would understand this as if you went there in July and then again in August, while my understanding of the Russian version is that you remain there in July and August and never left.

Is there something improper with this? "I was in Kiev in both July and August."

Could this also be translated as I was in Kyiv in Julry or in August?
