Ukrainian Exit-Visa regulation nightmares

My Ukrainian wife just got her Canadian Visa and she thought that everything was all set for her to travel to Canada, but inside the envelope was a sheet informing her that she had to first apply for and get a Ukrainian "EXIT VISA." She found out that it takes anywhere from 4 to 6 months to get an Exit Visa in Ukraine, and her Canadian visa is good for just under 6 months, then it will no longer be any good and she'll have to get another one. ----- My question is this: Why can't she just hop a jet and fly to Canada without an Exit visa? Will the Canadian government and American government not allow Ukrainians into their countries without an exit visa or is it just that the Ukrainian government won't allow their own people to escape from their prison-country without an exit visa? Please help me with this crazy exit visa problem, thank you.
