Academic grading in Ukraine was changed from the old Soviet system after 2002.

The new system for middle and high school provides grades that lie within 1 and 12 and are matched with the 5-point grade system that was used previously, as presented in the table below. 12 being an equivalent of honors/AP course "A+" in US, is always given only for significant achievements or exceptionally creative work, hence 11 is the grade that would be called A in the United States. The lowest passing grade is 4.[1]

The table above does not reflect the grading systems of all higher education institutions, as some of them are still using the former USSR system.
