Gender ID laws:

Ukrainian women face many problems, such as sex-based violence, employment, pay gap, misogyny, objectification, sexual exploitation etc. Women are underrepresented in many professions, science, technology, arts, economy, industry, political and social fields. We have some anti-discrimination law but it doesn't really work. Women's spaces are really under threat.

There are no important updates regarding self-identity. Gender self-identification is still not recognised in Ukraine but males who had undergone sex reassignment surgery are officially considered as women. 

Gender ID laws come from left-wing LGBTQ groups. Women-only lesbian events are considered "transphobic".
