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.

In France too some towns' names are always rendered in two lines now. For example: Saint-Jean-d'Angély <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Jean-d%27Ang%C3%A9ly> : http://osm.org/go/equZGaGg-- . Maybe it is an indented feature now, however at Google and Bing maps such town names are displayed in on line, as it should be.

The changes this topic is about are not live on openstreetmap.org. The original message has details, but the issue tracking the proposed changes is https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/pull/2349, and you can see images there that show what the change is.

The OpenStreetMap Carto project uses GitHub for issue tracking, so unless comments are made on the pull request they are likely to lost and not be considered when deciding to accept proposed changes.

After this discussion it seems that it is not an issue. It is just a designer's choice, - some towns' names (and other geographical names) are split now in two lines at a hyphen at any zoom. And it is not only in Ukraine, but in UK, France, and probably other places.
