Well, the people i spoke in Kharkiv were more focused on Moscow than Kiev. But it's quite remarkable that Kiev is not mentioned on the sign.

Or is it just that Kiev is in the other direction?

I was surprised to see the Roman-alphabet version of Warsaw spelled the way it is. Is there some sort of transliteration system they're following?

No, Kiev and Warsaw are in the same direction.

It's a simple transliteration of the Ukrainian (Cyrillic) name. A bit silly, if you ask me; they should write the Latin version in Polish (Warszawa).

I'm not sure what the longest distance shown is in Ireland (aside from that "joke" above), but this must be one of the top contenders:

On the M8 motorway just outside Cork city.

But they replaced it with a new sign two kilometers further on N-240, and it says Santiago 820 (The former showed 822 km). I also saw Barcelona 426 on A-21 near Pamplona (That was in August).

Paris is signed near Genève, Switzerland with a distance of 542 km. I think that is the largest distance shown in Switzerland.

Unfortunately, I missed the 542 sign, but here's the 536 sign:

In Liechtenstein there are no motorways. And on the main roads there are no real distance signs, like in Switzerland. Only at the end of a village there might be a sign showing the next village and a distance to the next bigger village, like this.
I don't know what the longest distance on this signs might be, but it's definately not much. The only villages outside of Liechtenstein I've seen on main road signs are bordertowns (Feldkirch, Buchs, Sevelen, Trübbach) and Maienfeld (accessible over St. Luzisteig Pass).

There are. But I was talking about main road signs (blue ones).

Chur might also be signed on main roads, but I'm not really sure at the moment. I will pay attention to it next time I drive through Liechtenstein.

I had a nice one that read "Bloemfontein 999 km" but I seem to have lost it and now the sign appears to have gone.

I liked it because of the unround number, it was on the N1 near the centre of Cape Town. Bloemfontein is the next city on the N1 but usually closer destinations such as Paarl are sign instead, so I thought it was quite unusual.

The thing about Canada is that there are no true 'national' routes (The TCH is maintained by the provinces), so the distances indicated do have their limits...
