BC Ukraine had paleolithic and neolithic cultures.  From the late bronze age the "native" farmers began to be bothered by horse nomads: Sarmatians, Scythians, Celts, Huns, etc.  On the Black Sea coast were Greek and then Roman colonies, during which came Goths, Avars, Huns, then Slavs, Arabs, Turks, Mongols.  A rich mix, often not so easy to decide which culture made a given artifact.
