Once at the ZAGS you will be asked to fill out these modules:

2 The module for to require the wedding celebration. Here you need to specify you personal data.

The second module must be filled out in Ukrainian Cyrillic by both.
If you can’t write in Cyrillic than there is some different procedure which require the presence of the notarius. The easiest way is to ask your Ukrainian fiance to help you with it.
