I'm with Jerry. Run it and see what happens. This is all for fun. If they have a Ukrainian assigned call sign and you work them, then that should count. If they have a Russian call sign, then they are not using a call assigned by Ukraine.

I've worked 100's of Ukraine stations in past year. Think the Russian in Crimea are using R - prefixes. Ukraine is probably a tough shot from PNW. but on the other hand here in Illinois I've never worked more than a dozen PSK stations in Japan.
I say we run it and see what happens.

Ukraine? you may need to refine that one a bit....I thought I saw a note from ARRL that some part of the country does not qualify as a DX entity...or something like that. The other issue might be an 'unubtanium' issue...will you accept Russian (small r) call signs?

From the East Coast, Brazil and Ukraine should be easy. Will need some propagation help for Japan. Looks like some good challenges for 2015.
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
