Sorry, was offline.

Now I can choose both "uk" and "ukrainian" dictionaries (which in fact
is the same, but that's not a problem for me anyway). And many languages
that are not really installed also remain. But that is not a problem for
me either. Ukrainian spell checking and flyspell mode now work again.

Many thanks! And my best regards!
