Ukraine has a very lenient visa policy. A lot of countries around the globe are visa-exempt, which means that the citizens of those countries do not require a visa when they visit. Keep in mind that the list of nationalities that can enter Ukraine without a visa indefinitely is short, but the list of nationalities that can stay up to 90 days is relatively long. The remaining nationalities who want to go to Ukraine are required to apply for a visa.
