Kievskoi means "from Kiev", formed according to Type IV on p. xxix of Wickenden. It says Kiev was founded c. 878-82 on p. 434 of the same source.

The modern Russian adjective is Kievskii, not Kievskoi. Kievskoi would be genetive case, not nominative case. But there are several examples of placenames using the -skoi ending in Wickenden, esp. in late period.
