The Ukrainian Hryvnia is pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of 8 UAH = $1 USD. It is not particularly easy to find currency provider that will provide Ukrainian Hryvnia here in the UK, which means competition is weak and the best deals can be hard to come by. Generally speaking it is better to buy Hryvnias through an online currency supplier rather than at a bank or airport as they offer the most competitive rates.
There are many currency exchange kiosks and US Dollars, Euros and Sterling can be cashed there at some banks. You should only use official exchange offices. To change money you will need to present your passport when you place your order and you should make sure you are given a receipt. You must keep this receipt as you may need to produce it if you want to exchange money back on departure.
US Dollars are accepted in Ukraine for certain purchases such as air tickets if you wish to fly on to another destination, but the best option is to use a prepaid currency card as these are accepted all over the country and can be easier and more flexible than taking multiple currencies and can be converted back into Sterling on your return. ATM machines are common in all but the smallest of villages.
As always you should take precautions to keep your money safe. You should avoid getting lured into situations where you may take your wallet out in the street. A common scam is to drop a wallet or bundle of money in front of a tourist. The criminal then 'finds' the money and asks if it is the tourist's or offers to share the money with them. If you are approached in this way, you should walk away without engaging in conversation.

Further information can be found on the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and State Border Service of Ukraine.
