Starting October 14, 2009 Ukraine introduces new dialing rules for domestic and international calls originating in this country and a new area code for the Kiev region:
- The old Trunk Code 8 (eight) is no longer required for dialing Ukraine long distance calls; as a result all Ukraine numbers will have the following national dialing format: 0 xx ??? ???? (xx is the area code/cellular network code)
- Dialing international calls from Ukraine no longer requires the old 8 Pause 10 Soviet exit code; instead, Ukraine now uses Exit code 00 adopted by most European countries
- The Kiev region is assigned area code 45, while the city of Kiev retains its old area code 44

Thanks for posting this info. I edited your post to more succintly report these changes – I hope you don’t mind.
One question: when dialing domestic calls do you have to pause after dialing zero? What about international calls (do you dial 0 pause 0)?

Thanks for editing. Now it is short and understandable 🙂
Waiting for pause depends on equipment(exchange) which serves your call outside region or country.
If it is digital (modern) — it is not necessary to wait for pause.
If it is analog (old) — you have to wait a little after 0, and after pause you should hear continuous beeeeeeeeeeeep.
Biggest telecom company in Ukraine, Ukrtelecom, says on their website next
1. Outside region and to mobile phones, whithin Ukraine:
0 (wait for continuous beep);
CITY CODE or MOBILE OPERATOR CODE;
2. Outside Ukraine:
0 (wait for continuous beep);
0 (prefix for abroad call);

just looked over website.
You changes 8-10 to 00
but you didn’t add new code of Kiev region – 45
I think that now a lot of inhabitants of Kiev region faces with great problems, receiving calls from abroad. Dan, you shouldn’t forget about them ! 🙂

We only list city codes. What is Kiev region anyway? Is this Kiev’s metropolitan area? Do you think people may get confused when seing Kiev area code=44 thus believing that all of Kiev’s region has area code 44?November 16, 2009 at 7:59 am #1626
Kiev city and Kiev region (oblast) are different administrative units. Kiev is a capital of Ukraine, so it has special status. It is like Washington D.C. in USA.
Kiev Oblast, also written as Kyiv Oblast is an oblast (province) in central Ukraine.
The administrative center of the oblast is the city of Kiev (Ukrainian: ????, Kyiv), also being the capital of Ukraine. Despite being located in the center of the Kiev Oblast, and hosting the governing bodies of the oblast, “`Kiev itself is a self-governing city with special status and not under oblast jurisdiction“`.
I offer you to state in your list Kiev city(44) and Kiev region(45) separately.

i’m sure for 99,9% that you can try two ways and one of them will be successful
1) dial 380-57-74497xx
2) dial 380-572-4497xx
few years ago Kharkiv added 7 before some number groups.
