The hyphens are not disappearing from the Ukrainian geographical names.
The names are just always spit in two lines at a hyphen for some towns.
Exactly as for Wotton-under-Edge
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wotton-under-Edge> in the UK. Google map
shows the name /Wotton-under-Edge/ always in one line on the map:
https://www.google.com/maps/@51.6338253,-2.3526667,14.95z?hl=en , but
the OSM map always shows this name split in two lines.

Well that's just a design choice really. It's not "wrong" as such to split it, it's just a question of whether the designer prefers to split it or not.

That said it seems that OS maps don't normally split them, though they have often replaced the hyphens with spaces!
